A man in his 20s is fighting for life after being shot multiple times outside his home in Brent, north-west London, at around 8.30pm on Thursday night. An unnamed eyewitness claimed the attacker used to “machine gun” to fire at hail of bullets at the victim in Lawrence Avenue, according to the Evening Standard.

The man, who was treated at the scene before being rushed to hospital in a critical condition, was shot at least eight times, the witness claims.

Police found another man in his 20s with critical stabbing injuries just two hours later about a mile away in Rainborough Close.

Scotland Yard is investigating whether there is a link between the two attacks.

Sad-EEK Con will be consulting with the "hoggalites" to find a proper solution. Well, other than claiming "That's life in the big city. Get used to it." Besides, this is unpossible since Londonistan is a gun free/knife free zone.

Islamic countries have a lot of violence. It’s not something I worry about, because I don’t plan to visit any Islamic countries like the UK.

Ya, it’s shocking to hear of a shooting in London, due to their strict gun laws.

“Terrorism is just part and parcel of living in a big city.”

If you’re a muslim.

Civilized people won’t put up with it forever, pal.

The lunatics love their knives but efficiency demands the use of effective firepower. Britain did this to themselves. Churchill would find modern Britain repulsive.

Unpossible. Guns and pointy knives are very highly restricted in merry old England.

Peaceful immigrants in Sweden have occasionally used hand grenades as part of their peaceful activities.

I wonder how long before that peaceful activity will show up in London. Then Mayor Khan will say “hand grenade attacks are part and parcel of living in a big city.”

Loganberries, sadly, are still widely available without any permits at all.

...and the MSM, both British and American seem oblivious to the importance of the ethnicity of both the victim and the killer...

And the social and political pathology just gets worse.

What's that definition of "insanity," again?
