This is seriously scary for the star!


Pop star Rita Ora was reportedly almost caught up in a ‘drive by shooting’ on a street in west London this afternoon after a suspected armed driver is thought to have fired through a window of a building in Notting Hill.

The 26-year-old singer was seen chilling in the sun on Wednesday (15th March), having a drink with her pals – but around five minutes after she passed by the area, reports claim the sound of gunfire was heard.

Armed police officers then rushed to the scene just after 2pm to investigate the suspected gunfire, but luckily Rita and her model pal, Alice Dellal had moved on by this point.

How scary is that?

A police spokesman later confirmed the frightening incident with a statement which read: ‘On Wednesday, 15 March police were called shortly after 14:00hrs to a report of shots fired in Colville Gardens, W11.

‘Local officers attended along with firearms officers and found no injured persons. There was evidence that a firearm had been discharged.

‘A crime scene is currently in place and officers remain on scene. There have been no arrests and enquiries are ongoing.

‘Detectives from the Trident and Command Area Crime Command are investigating.’

There’s no word from Rita about the near-miss yet, but we bet she’s just glad to have dodged the terrifying incident!
