Man charged after police tackle kebab shop gunman in Water Lane, Tulse Hill
A man has been charged with possession of a gun after an incident in a kebab shop in the early hours on Sunday morning.
A man who allegedly pointed a gun at unarmed police officers at the restaurant in Water Lane, Tulse Hill, was wrestled to the ground after threatening staff and customers.
A gun was recovered by police, along with six rounds of ammunition.
It happened at about 4.10am on January 12, when customers reported that a man had threatened customers with a gun and then left.
When unarmed officers from Lambeth police arrived at the scene, the man is said to have returned with a firearm, before he was tackled by the officers.
Michael Andrade White 41, of Jelf Road, Brixton, was charged yesterday with possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition.
He will appear in custody at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court later today.
