Man arrested over Queen’s Park shooting of young mum

Three woman, including mum holding baby, released from hospital

A man has been arrested in connection with the shooting of three women, including a young mum who was cradling her baby in Queen’s Park, Brent.

The 18-year-old woman was holding her 11-month-old son when she was hit in the neck by pellets from the bullet in John Fearon Walk in the Mozart Estate on September 29.

The bullet missed the baby by inches.

Detectives believe the girls were talking to a group of boys nearby when a gunman fired at the crowd hitting the young mother, a 17-year-old girl and a 19-year-old woman.
