Bow shooting: Two men aged 21 and 66 shot in east London in another night of bloodshed | The Sun

TWO men have been rushed to hospital after being shot in east London in another night of bloodshed.

A 21-year-old and 66-year-old were seriously injured last night after the horror unfolded.

Emergency services raced to the scene and quickly transported the two men to hospital.

Police said the older man's injuries are non-life threatening, and they're waiting to hear more about the 21-year-old.

It comes just days after four people were stabbed to death in separate incidents across the country on the eve of the coronation.

Three of the killings were within eight hours in East London, as the capital’s knife crime epidemic showed no sign of abating.
