Moment armed cops swoop to arrest suspect after funeral drive-by shooting that’s linked to cartel crook’s gangland past | The SunJanuary 16, 2023
THIS is the dramatic moment armed police swooped on two suspects after drive-by shooting at a funeral.
A seven-year-old girl was left fighting for life after a shotgun was fired at mourners in a "senseless act of violence".
Five others were also wounded in the horror in Euston, North London, including a 48-year-old woman who suffered potentially life-changing injuries.
Footage has now emerged of the moment armed officers stormed a residential street.
The cops can be seen wielding guns as they surround two men before telling them to "get on the ground".
They had been forcibly removed from a crashed car similar to the Toyota C-HR used in the shooting.

Horrified witnesses told how police made "heavy contact" with the car before surrounding it.
One said: "I’ve never seen anything like it in my life – it happened so fast and became a major police operation in the blink of an eye.”
Police confirmed a 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
The horror unfolded on Saturday at St Aloysius Church where a memorial service was taking place for a young woman and her mum.

Gunmen opened fire from a moving Toyota at around 1.30pm as 350 people gathered for the requiem mass.
Footage showed terrified mourners screaming as they ran for cover from the shotgun blasts.
Those inside the church could be heard shouting "we need to get out" as gunshots rang through the air.
The Met said yesterday the seven-year-old girl remains in hospital in a stable but life-threatening condition.
Four women aged 21, 41, 48 and 54 were also taken to hospital but their injuries were described as non-life threatening.
A 12-year-old sustained a leg injury in the attack but was later discharged from hospital.
It is understood the crime is being linked with a Colombian drug cartel.
Fresia Calderon, 50, and her daughter Sara Sanchez, 20, were being remembered after they died within a month of each other.
Her former husband Carlos Arturo Sanchez-Coronado was a convicted member of the notorious Cali drug cartel, which featured in Netflix show Narcos.
Sanchez-Coronado, who died last year aged 56, was the first man extradited from Colombia to Britain.
