Adelaide Grove W12 was the scene of an armed arrest yesterday morning. Two men were taken into custody after a stand off that included actual violence between the two men who were leaving a flat at around 0930 an the police that had arrived to arrest them. Although initial reports described shots being fired the police have confirmed that this was a form of gun that is used to disable cars, nobody was actually being shot at.
I first picked up on this on twitter with several of you asking about armed police in Shepherd's Bush yesterday, and although very curious I was frankly too busy to look it into it. The Chronicle, which never gets delivered locally but has its stories on a website here, has a good piece on the whole thing.
Once again the local police press operation was woeful with no information being provided "unless asked" and even then hardly anything. Cheers rozzers. As ever, if you know anything else or have personal experiences to share please use the comments.
