Westminster shooting: Mozart Estate probe cops arrest pair
Detectives question 19 and 22-year-old after victim shot in chest and abdomen
Detectives investigating a drive-by shooting on the Mozart Estate where a man was shot twice have arrested and bailed two more people.
A 19 and 22-year-old man were quizzed by officers after a 21-year-old was shot in the chest and abdomen as he stood at the junction of Third Avenue and Bruckner Street in Queen’s Park, on December 21 at 3.50pm.
He was taken to hospital in a critical condition but has since improved and is stable.
On Wednesday, officers from Operation Trident, the Met’s specialist team that investigates gun crime in London, made the arrests.
Both men were subsequently bailed to return to a police station in March.
Last month, a 17-year-old boy from South Kilburn was arrested and bailed to return to a police station this month.
