Last night’s Evening Standard splash boards featured ‘CAMBERWELL SHOP OWNER SHOT IN RAID’ headlines; my newsagent was sold out, so I searched their website: nothing. So I searched Google News: nothing. ICSouthLondon: nothing. What’s going on? There was no police presence around Camberwell Green, so it must have happened elsewhere. Anyone have any clues?
The search did throw up this story of local artist Mark McGowan (as featured in a recent post). He was doing a project in which he claimed he was keying cars and then photographing them, only it seems to have upset a lot of people and he’s now revealed it was all a hoax. I still prefer paintings.
The offender demanded cash before shooting one member of staff in the groin. One worker then hit the suspect over the head.
Sounds a little slapstick to me.
