A LAS spokesperson said:
"We were called at 1.52pm today (11 May) to reports of an incident on Cooper Road, NW10.
"We sent an ambulance crew, two medics in cars, and an incident response officer. We also dispatched London's Air Ambulance.
"A person was treated at the scene and taken to a major trauma centre as a priority."
Traffic is at a standstill.
One local who drove past the scene after emergency services had arrived said the roads were "chocker".
She added: "I was just driving down and saw the air ambulance. There were lots of police cars, lots of police men, lots of ambulances and an air ambulance in the grounds of the College of North West London.
"The roads have been taped up, all the roads are blocked, it's chocker.
"It's getting beyond a joke. There was a shooting just down the road last week."
