Detectives are appealing for information and witnesses following a shooting in Brent.

Police were called at around 2am on Sunday (June 13) to reports of shots fired in the area of Mandela Close.

Paramedics said they were called at the same time to Mordaunt Road in Harlesden.

A London Ambulance Service said: “Medics were asked to wait nearby until the police secured the scene and confirmed that it was safe for crews to proceed forward to treat the patient.”

A 26-year-old man was taken to a major trauma centre with gunshot injuries to his leg.

He was discharged from hospital later that day and was subsequently charged with assault on an emergency worker.

"At some point between officers arriving at the incident and him being discharged from hospital, he assaulted one of them," a Met spokesperson said.
