A fourth youth has been arrested in connection with a double shooting that left two teenagers in a serious condition.
This afternoon (Tuesday), a 16-year-old boy voluntarily attended a police station to speak to officers about the incident.
Hours earlier a 15-year-old was arrested by detectives from the Met Police's gun crime unit and on Monday morning a 14 and 15-year-old were also arrested at separate addresses.
On Saturday officers were called to Blackbird Hill, Neasden, and found an 18 and 19-year-old with gunshot wounds.
The pair, believed to be Eastern European brothers, were found at 10.50pm.

Detective Inspector Mick Millar, who is heading the investigation, said: "We understand that the victims were approached by possibly five black youths believed to be in their teens and that a verbal confrontation took place between them.
"The suspects were aggressive towards the victims and attempted to rob them.
"One suspect produced a handgun and fired several shots at the victims from a close proximity. All five suspects then made off, two of which were on bicycles, one of these is described as a red 'BMX' type bike."
