Man shot by police in Brixton after seven-hour eviction stand off

policeA man is in a critical condition after being shot by police following a siege that lasted seven hours.

Yesterday, Friday August 21, police escorted a housing officer to a residential address on Tilson Gardens, SW2

At 09:45 am, unarmed police and a housing officer tried to enter the property to evict the man. 

Police then withdrew and armed officers and a negotiator were called to the scene.

The man was shot at 4:46 pm outside the premises.

He has been taken to a south London hospital suffering serious injuries.


  1. Has a D Notice – (a government notice issued to news editors requiring them not to publicize certain information for reasons of national security) – been slapped on the story?

  2. Surely Anna McKie or somebody at the Brixton Blog should be finding out what happened to this guy? What is his name? Has he recovered? Is he dead?
