Two men have been bailed by police investigating the shooting of an innocent woman shopper caught in the crossfire during a gun fight in Peckham, south London.

Police were called at around 5.15pm on March 11 to Bournemouth Road close to Rye Lane following reports of shots fired.

A 30-year-old woman suffering a gunshot wound was taken by ambulance to hospital where her condition remains stable.

Two men aged 19 and 20 were arrested by detectives in Ramsgate, Kent.

They have been bailed to late March pending further inquiries.

Any witnesses to the incident, or anyone with information, should call the Trident south shootings team on 020 8785 8580 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
