Gunmen in Halloween masks opened fire with automatic weapons on revellers at an illegal rave.

At least three men unleashed a hail of bullets inside and outside the makeshift club on an industrial estate.

The gunmen, wearing clown, ghost and ghoul masks, hit a 41-year-old man in the leg while a woman in her 20s was shot in the chest.Gunmen in Halloween masks use automatic weapons to open fire at illegal rave in Leyton

One clubber appears to return fire, with a handgun, video from the event shows.

A business owner, whose property was hit by a stray bullet, said: “It looked like it was a gangland execution gone wrong.”

The shooting happened at the Money Move rave in Leyton, North East London.

One partygoer said: “There must have been at least four guns. It was terrifying. Everyone who had got out was just running but there were over 100 trapped inside. I turned and ran.

“They had blocked off the only road out of the rave with a car before, so not many got out.”Gunmen in Halloween masks use automatic weapons to open fire at illegal rave in Leyton

Video from the scene shows the wounded man being helped by a woman using a belt as a tourniquet.

As he urges her to tighten the white belt, she tells him: “Make no blood come out, you’re good man.”Gunmen in Halloween masks use automatic weapons to open fire at illegal rave in Leyton main

The venue, described as an African church, is said to be often hired for raves.

The Met Police would not speculate on the motive for the shooting. A spokesman added: “There have been no arrests. Enquiries continue.”
