A man was shot early today as armed officers swooped on suspected robbers in south west London.
Officers from the Met's Flying Squad assisted by firearms officers descended on a small residential street in Wimbledon shortly after 8am on Monday.
Witnesses claimed the suspect was shot in an exchange of fire with police after a stake-out outside a Sainsbury’s store.
The man suffered a gunshot wound during the pre-planned "proactive" operation.
He was taken by London Ambulance Service to a London hospital. Another man was arrested for conspiracy to rob.This is just round the corner. The bus I took to New Malden on the weekend goes past the Sainsbury's in Haydons Road.
