A seven-year-old girl and three women have been taken to hospital after a shooting outside a funeral near Euston station in central London.
The Metropolitan Police said officers were called to Phoenix Road at 1.30pm on Saturday to reports of a shooting.
Three women – aged 48, 54, and 41 – were taken to hospital after the incident, the force added.
Their injuries are not thought to be life threatening, but the 48-year-old suffered a potentially life-changing injury.
A seven-year-old girl was later taken to hospital with injuries believed to have been sustained in the same incident. The girl’s condition is not yet known.
Detectives said the incident took place in the vicinity of a church, where a funeral was taking place.
Police said their initial inquiries suggest shots came from a moving vehicle, which was then driven away from the scene.
No arrests have yet been made and an “urgent investigation is under way”, the force added.
Police officers and medics from the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance were called to the scene.
