A Jaguar car was written off after crashing on Ealing Road Brentford around midnight this Sunday (18 October).
Police received a report of shots being fired on Layton Road shortly beforehand.
Eye-witness report that immediately before the shooting a high speed chase took place involving two or three cars one of which is believed to have been a Mercedes.
One report suggests that the Jaguar was already damaged before it collided with the railway bridge on Ealing Road and had been chased around the roundabout on the A4 before doubling back towards Brentford.
When the police arrived the occupants of both vehicles had already left the scene. Armed officers were called to the incident and the NPAS helicopter flew over the scene to locate suspects.
Cllr Partick Barr, who represents Chiswick Homefields ward on Hounslow Council witnessed the immediate aftermath of the collision on Ealing Road. He said, “Car still on and smoking, air bags deployed, occupants ran off. Stay clear of car. Be aware of casualties that could be suffering from shock in local vicinity.”
