A nine-year-old girl remains in hospital fighting for her life a week after a shooting in Hackney, police have said. Detectives are investigating a potential link to Turkish “organised criminal networks”.

The youngster was eating dinner at a restaurant with her family when a lone motorcyclist fired “a number of shots” towards the building on Kingsland Road, east London, at around 9.20pm last Wednesday, the Metropolitan Police said.

It added that three men sitting outside the restaurant – aged 37, 42 and 44 – were also shot and have since been discharged from hospital.

The force has reiterated its appeal for information from Turkish and Kurdish communities.
