Police were filmed swarming a car being driven by two suspects after a drive-by shooting at a memorial service in London over the weekend.
Armed officers are seen around the engine on the quiet residential street near Euston, north London on Saturday.
It came after a shooting at a memorial to Sara Sanchez and her mother Fresia Calderon – whose ex is a gangster linked to the notorious Colombian Cali cartel.
Armed officers can be seen pointing their powerful weapons at the people in the black car and ordering them to get down.

They had been forcibly removed from a crashed car similar to the Toyota C-HR used in the shooting.
An eyewitness told Sun Police they had “heavy contact” with the car, adding: “I’ve never seen anything like it in my life – it happened so quickly and became a major police operation in the blink of an eye.”

Four women and two children were injured in the attack, the youngest was in mortal danger.

Police said the 48-year-old had potentially life-changing injuries.
A 21-year-old woman was also taken to a central London hospital and her condition was assessed as non-life-threatening.
The seven-year-old girl remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.
A 12-year-old girl who sustained a leg injury is expected to make a full recovery.
The shots caused mourners to run and scream, many of whom took shelter in the church, witnesses said.
Father Jeremy Trood, who led the service, confirmed it was a funeral service for Sara Sanchez, 20, and her mother, who both died in November.
Ms. Sanchez suffered from leukemia for three years before succumbing to the disease.
Her death came after her mother suddenly died of a rare blood clot on arrival at Heathrow from Colombia.
