A 23-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder following a double shooting at a flat in Croydon.

Zarek McKoy will appear at Croydon Magistrates’ Court tomorrow morning to answer the charge, along with two counts of wounding with intent.

McKoy, of Hambrook Road, South Norwood, is in police custody ahead of his appearance at the court.

His arrest comes 11 days after police were called to Kingsdown Avenue, South Croydon, and found two people who had sustained gunshot injuries.

The 19-year-old man and 20-year-old woman were taken to a south London hospital with non life threatening injuries.
