    Hunt under way for hooded gunman

    A hooded gunman suspected of carrying out two shootings in north London is still at large.

    One man is critically ill after he was fired at in Upper Street, Islington, on Wednesday evening.

    About 30 minutes later, a woman was caught up in a second attack as she stood near two men inside Finsbury Park Tube station.

    The victim, thought to be in her 20s, was shot in the back and taken to hospital but has since been discharged.

    The first attack on the man, believed to be in his 30s, took place at 1845 BST on Wednesday.

    Police were then called to Finsbury Park after reports of several shots being fired at two men.

    In both cases, police have described the suspect as a white man wearing a grey hooded top.

    Parts of Upper Street in Islington remain cordoned off.

    I'm not worried! I don't live in London anymore.

    But then again it depends on what statistics you are reading!

    Curiousity is killing me....weren't fireamrs ripped from the law abiding citizens and banned nationwide? I know that there is a ban and since the guns are banned even the bad guys have to listen to it right?

    Thank God for Gun Control. I know everyone over there feels a lot safer. Here in the states we still have the awlful things, as many as I can lay my hands on and still afford to practice with. Don't worry, the UN will save us from ourselves.
