A TEENAGER was killed and another man left injured after they were gunned down in a London street by two men who were wearing bandanas.

Terrified witnesses described how three gunshots were fired in Clapton, east London, at 8:20pm on Saturday.

A 19-year-old man was rushed to hospital but later died, while a 22-year-old man was understood to be in a stable condition, Scotland Yard said. The pair were sitting in a car at the time.

Zach Carpenter, 18, saw two men wearing bandanas across their faces before he heard three loud bangs. He said one man was black with a red and white chequered bandana, while the other was white with a black bandana.

He said: “After about 30 seconds I heard three loud bangs. It’s ­unnerved me a bit because my family live nearby.”
