A man has been convicted following the shooting of a man and woman in Wood Green last September.

Kenloy Clarke, 34 (17.01.86), of Birkbeck Road, N8, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey on Wednesday 20 May to a series of charges relating to the incident on Friday, 20 September 2019.

These were: one count of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, one count of possession of ammunition with intent to endanger life, one count of possession of a firearm when prohibited, one count of possession of ammunition without a firearm certificate, and two counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Police were originally called at around 21:50hrs on 17 September 2019 to reports of a shooting on Lordship Lane near Wood Green High Road.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended, however all persons involved had left the scene prior to the arrival of emergency services.

A short time later, a 46-year-old-woman and a 31-year-old-man self-presented at hospital.

The woman had sustained a gunshot injury and although she has since been discharged from hospital, her condition was critical for some time.

The 31-year-old man also had a gunshot injury; he has also been discharged from hospital and has made a full recovery.

Clarke was arrested three days after the attack, on Friday, 20 September 2019, and charged with a series of offences in relation to the incident.

Kenloy Clarke will appear in custody for sentencing at the Old Bailey on Friday, 3 July.

DC Damon Carr from the Trident unit at Specialist Crime North, said: "I hope this verdict brings some kind of closure for the two victims in this case, who were lucky not to have lost their lives.

"The Met will continue to relentlessly bear down on all forms of violence that threaten our communities."
