A third teenager is shot in Harlesden in two days
Sixteen-year-old targeted yesterday (Sunday) and two brothers shot on Friday
A third teenager has been shot in Harlesden two days after a double shooting on Friday that left two brothers with ‘life-changing’ injuries.
The 16-year-old boy was shot in the leg in Burns Road at around 10pm yesterday (Sunday) by three youths on pedal bikes.
The victim was rushed to hospital where he is in a stable condition.
Two days earlier, two boys aged 15 and 17 were shot in Talbot walk in Church Road estate at around 10pm.
The teenagers, who are said to be brothers, were in a group when the gunman is said to have walked up and fired several times at the two boys before fleeing on foot.
All three shootings are being investigated by Operation Trident, the Met’s specialist team that probes gun crime in London.
