Paintball Pest Who Shot Pedestrians From Car Hunted

Police hunting a paintball menace, who shot at least 18 people in north London from a Mercedes, have released this CCTV image of the suspected vehicle.

The white male, aged in his forties, was identified driving the white Mercedes 350GLE, which sported false number plates, during the two-hour spree last summer.

Male and female pedestrians have reported suffering bruising injuries to police while walking in Camden, Archway, Holloway, Islington, Clerkenwell and Canonbury.

The first incident took place at approximately 9.00pm on Friday, August 5, last year on Camden Road.

The last reported assaults took place at approximately 11.00pm close to St. Paul's Road.

It is believed that the suspect may have been in the company of one or more people who were driving a red Ford Focus.

Enquiries have established that the Mercedes has been seen parked in the N1 and EC1 areas of Islington.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Alex Simmons at Islington on 020 7421 0262 or via 101.
