London shootings: Boy, 16, dies after second fatal attack

A 16-year-old boy found with bullet wounds within an hour of another fatal shooting in London has died. The teenager, named locally as Amaan Shakoor, was left critically ill after he was shot in the face in Walthamstow on Monday.
His death follows that of a 17-year-old girl, named locally as Tanesha Melbourne, who was killed in Tottenham. The killings, which police say are not linked, take the number of murders in the capital this year to 48. Amaan died in hospital at 17:45 BST on Tuesday with his next of kin at his side. A 15-year-old boy who was stabbed in the same attack has been released from hospital. Extra police are on the streets of Walthamstow and officers said they were using stop-and-search powers to seize weapons. Tanesha, whose name has not been officially confirmed, was pronounced dead at 22:43 on Monday after a drive-by shooting in Chalgrove Road near Northumberland Park, Tottenham. Her death came as police were already at the scene two miles away in Markhouse Road, Walthamstow, after being called at about 22:00. There have been no arrests in either investigation.
