Police have launched an investigation after a gun was fired during a burglary in Wembly.
The incident happened on Thursday, 25 February, at approximately 01:25hrs at a residential property in The Drive.
The burglars numbered up to three men, gained entrance into the property and demanded money from the four occupants by threatening them.
In a statement on Friday, the police said that one of the occupants was hit in the head with a gun.
Realising there was no money, the hoodlums shot fire while leaving the property.
No serious injuries were recorded.
Investigators from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command (Trident) are now appealing for information from anybody who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area at the time.
Detective Constable Steven Renny described the incident as “terrifying” for the occupants of the property.
He said it was “fortunate” that nobody was seriously injured.
He added, “I am appealing for those who were in the area at the time to come forward and report anything suspicious.
“I would also like to hear from anyone in the area with a dashcam or video doorbell.”
