Three people gunned down in brutal attack in North London as cops launch hunt for shooter | The Sun

THREE people – including a teenage boy – have been gunned down in a horror attack on the streets of London.

Cops and paramedics were called to Dog Lane in Brent, north-west of the capital, just after 7pm last night following reports of a shooting.

They found a 17-year-old boy with a gunshot wound at the scene.

Two more victims – a 21-year-old man and another man believed to be aged in his early 20s – were also found nearby.

All three casualties were rushed to hospital.

The teenager's injuries aren't believed to be life-changing or life-threatening.

However, the two men in their 20s were seriously hurt. One suffered a wound that could yet prove to be life-changing, police say,

Armed officers were the first at the scene. They gave all three victims emergency first aid.

Police last night enforced a Section 60 order in the area – meaning any member of the public could be stopped and searched, even if they'd done nothing to arouse suspicion.

Despite that, no arrests have yet been made.
