Panic in Kensal Green pub following drive-by shooting
Incident being linked with feuding gangs
Terrified bystanders fearing for their lives fled into a Kensal Green pub after a gunman opened fire in a drive-by shooting.
The crowd had been queuing to buy food next to the William IV pub, in Harrow Road, at about 1.30am, on Saturday morning when shots were fired from someone inside a passing grey Volkswagen Golf.
According to a witness who asked not to be named, the crowd rushed into the pub causing panic among revellers. Luckily, no one was injured.
The anonymous person said: “All hell broke lose. It was crazy. One minute everyone was enjoying the music and then all of a sudden these people came from no-where.
