Horrifying CCTV footage has emerged which shows the moment a gunman burst into a chicken shop in Plaistow and shot two 16-year-old boys.
The short clip shows the victims cowering in a corner as the gunman storms through the door and shoots one in the back and the other in the leg.
Both suffered non life-threatening injuries in the shooting which took place inside the fast food shop in Terrace Road, last Friday just after 8.30pm.
The footage, supplied to the Recorder by shop worker Ragz Capone, shows a group of young men sitting in the shop and laughing and joking before two males, who are standing, spot the gunman arriving and dive for cover behind the shop counter.
Within seconds some of the other males also run for their life by jumping over the counter shortly before the gunman walks into the shop and shoots the two victims with a sawn-ff shotgun.
