Teenager hurt in street shooting
Adam Regis
Adam Regis was killed last month, close to the scene of the shooting
A teenager has been shot and seriously injured in east London, a few streets from where 15-year-old Adam Regis was killed last month.

Police said they received reports that a man had been shot in Harold Road, Plaistow - close to West Ham United's football stadium.

The 19-year-old Asian man was taken to hospital with a gunshot wound and is said to be seriously ill.

Police say they have not made any arrests so far.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said police and an ambulance crew were called out at about 1920 BST on Easter Monday.

In the past two months, at least six male teenagers have been killed in London.

Just three days ago, 14-year-old Paul Erhahon died outside his home in Leytonstone, east London, after a fatal stabbing.

And it is less than a month since Adam Regis, nephew of former Olympic athlete John Regis, was stabbed to death at the junction of Boundary Road and Kingsland Road in Plaistow.
