Officers from the Met Police Organised Crime Command and Specialist Firearms Operational Command Unit, have this morning, Friday, 11 December, arrested four men as a result of a pre-planned intelligence led operation.
Two of the men were arrested in the area of Bracknell Close, N22. They have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to facilitate the escape of an individual from lawful custody.
There were two further related arrests.
The four men arrested are at separate London police stations, and we are not prepared to provide any further information as to where.
During the operation in Bracknell Close a man was shot, and has subsequently died. The circumstances of that shooting are now under investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission and as such it would be inappropriate to comment any further at this stage.
