A MAN has been charged with attempted murder following a shooting in Pollards Hill.

Armani Bridge-Stewart, 26, of Galpin Road, has also been charged with possession of a firearm with intent, and being a prohibited person with a firearm.

The charges follow a call to police with reports of a man injured with a firearm at 12.47 hrs in Chestnut Grove.

There was no trace of the victim or suspect at the scene, but a short time later, a 24-year-old man self-presented at a south London hospital with a gunshot injury to his leg.
