DOZENS of armed cops and officers in riot gear were last night pelted with missiles by a raging mob after being called to reports a man had been shot and stabbed in Brixton.
Videos posted online showed a large police presence in South London after the emergency services arrived at the scene at 9.35pm.
A man in his mid-20s was found suffering stab wounds and gunshot injuries and he was rushed to a South London hospital but his condition is unknown.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed officers were approached by a large group and missiles were thrown at them.
Dramatic pictures taken last night showed a huge line of officers wearing riot gear while another image shows a smashed police van window after objects were hurled in its direction.
Officers shut roads in the area and a crime scene remains in place this morning.
Cops today confirmed a 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and remains in police custody.
Just hours after the Brixton incident, cops were called to Rosendale Road in West Dulwich following reports of another stabbing.
A man was found with stab wounds and was rushed to hospital just before 11pm.
