NEUTRINO, one half of the UK garage duo OXIDE & NEUTRINO has been shot in central LONDON.
A press representative for the pair told NME.COM this afternoon that Neutrino was shot in the leg after leaving a central London nightclub late last night (May 1).
Details are currently sketchy, but the spokesperson claims that Neutrino had been sharing a night out with band member Oxide in central London.
After leaving the club alone, the spokesperson said he was approached as he walked to his car by a man attempting to mug the star. In the struggle that ensued, a gun was fired, leaving the 19-year-old with a flesh-wound to the calf.
Neutrino admitted himself into a local hospital, where staff notified police because of the nature of his injury. He was then arrested and taken to Charing Cross police station, where he was treated by a police doctor, before being released without charge this afternoon.
A spokesperson for the police was unavailable this afternoon to confirm whether any other arrests have been made in relation to the incident.
Oxide & Neutrino have topped the UK charts in previous months with their ‘Casualty’ sampling ‘Bound 4 Da Reload (Casualty)’ song and its follow-up ‘No Good 4 Me’.
The latter featured a sample from the Evelyn and the Champagne King track ‘No Good For Me’, which was famously sampled on the the Prodigy‘s hit ‘No Good (Start The Dance)’.
