Romford man arrested following Dagenham shooting that injured 20-year-old

A Romford man has been arrested in connection with a shooting in Dagenham last week.

Police said the 21-year-old was placed on bail until January but remains in custody for an unrelated offence.

Following the incident, which is believed to have happened near Trefgarne Road last Monday evening (November 26), a 20-year-old man went to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel with a gun shot wound to his shoulder.

He continues to receive treatment for the injury, which was not life-threatening.

Officers from Operation Trident — the Met’s specialist unit tackling gang crime — are investigating the shooting.
