A man was seriously ill in hospital last night after he was caught in the crossfire during a gunfight between two warring gangs at a street festival.

The 27-year-old man was airlifted to hospital yesterday afternoon after being shot in the stomach.

The 27-year-old man was stretchered to the air ambulance where he was airlifted to hospital after being shot at London fields, Hackney, in East London

Police said he was white and had suffered a single handgun wound. His condition was described as serious but stable.

It is believed he was the innocent victim of a feud between the two rival gangs at the event in East London.

The incident occurred at 3.30pm as festival-goers filled the streets.

One witness said he saw several men being chased by another gang before two shots were fired from the handgun.

The gunmen were later seen dropping a black and grey rucksack next to a local newsagent’s. Police are understood to have recovered a gun from the bag.

Hundreds of families had gathered for the day-long celebration in London Fields, Hackney.

The busy festival was intended to launch a series of summer events, called Parks For Life, across the borough’s parks and gardens.

London Fields was turned into three separate villages for the day, featuring cookery demonstrations, gardening and free swimming lessons at a nearby lido.

The shooting happened in one of the more prosperous parts of the borough where houses sell for more than £700,000.

One witness said: ‘The park was packed, there wasn’t even enough room to move. We suddenly heard about three gunshots from 50 yards away and saw a group of black youths running through the park.

‘Everyone rushed over to the man who had been shot but he appeared to have had nothing to do with them.’

Another witness called Peter, from Dublin, said: ‘There were two groups of youths who were antagonising each other and suddenly one group started shooting at the other.

‘Then a white guy sitting around his barbecue with friends got shot in the crossfire.’

And a festival-goer called Jacob added: ‘We were just sitting around playing our guitars when we heard a gunshot and saw a black kid running past wearing a white shirt and jeans. It was awful.’

The Mayor of Hackney, Jules Pipe, said: ‘Despite this very worrying incident, hundreds of people were able to enjoy the event in London Fields safely.

'Thankfully the incident took place some distance from the event, but if anyone has any information, I would urge them to contact the police.’
