Gun fired outside east London mosque during Ramadan prayers  

Police are hunting for a man suspected of firing a shot outside an east London mosque during evening prayers for Ramadan. The man was reported to have entered the Seven Kings mosque in Ilford on Thursday night, but was “ushered out” by those inside, police said. A shot was then heard at 10.45pm. Police said there were no injuries and they were not treating it as a terrorist incident. They said they believed the shot came from a blank-firing handgun.

One theory police are considering is that the gunshot followed a dispute linked to gangs or criminality which started in the street and then moved into the mosque. Read more HERE.
