A murder investigation has been launched following the shooting of a 22-year-old in Croydon.

Police were called at around 11.25pm on Friday to reports of a man with a gunshot injury in Eastney Road.

The emergency services pronounced the man dead at the scene.

Next of kin have been informed and a post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police via 101 or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

I need to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the Eastney Road area late on Friday night.

I would urge any witnesses, or anyone with information that may assist the investigation, to call police and tell us what they saw or what they know.
