Chuka Umunna MP: Statement on the shooting in Brixton earlier today

Chuka Umunna MP said: 

“Our whole community will be deeply shocked by this terrible incident, and everyone living locally will be wishing those who have been injured a speedy recovery.

“It is very important that those who provide housing and related services can do their jobs without living in fear, never mind without suffering extreme violence of this type. I have been in contact with the Police since this incident occurred, and I know the investigation into what has happened is proceeding at pace. My thoughts will continue to be with those who have been injured.

“This is a sad example of the clear need to rid our society of guns and the scourge of gun violence.”
