Daily Mail on superlative form.

Spotted by Chef Dave in The Daily Mail:

It could be a scene from the heart of one of Los Angeles' infamous ganglands - but this chilling video was in fact shot in a north London suburb just yards away from a busy shopping centre.

A gunman who is believed to have been wearing Muslim dress was filmed chasing four teenagers past houses and parked cars before appearing to shoot one of them as they cowered next to a house.

The shocking footage, taken outside Edmonton shopping centre around 2pm, showed the man following the young boys as they desperately tried to flee the scene, which is less than half a mile from a nearby primary school…

As he pulls the trigger, a shot rings out - but the man, who is wearing jeans and a T-shirt, manages to escape. The victim then desperately tries to scramble up the pavement away from his attacker, who appears to give up before running up a nearby busy road. The rest of the group can be seen getting into a car to escape the suburb, where the average house price is £280,000.

Reading the rest of the article, it does look like it might have been staged, especially since "evidence of a discharged blank firearm was discovered", but I'll have Ralph Musgrave accusing me of wanting Britain to become a Muslim country if I say that.
