A third schoolboy has been arrested in connection with a double shooting that left two teenagers in a serious condition.

Officers from the Met Police's gun crime unit arrested the 15-year-old this morning (Tuesday) after the 18 and 19 year-old were shot during a suspected robbery in Blackbird Hill, Neasden, on Saturday night.

The pair, who are believed to be Eastern European brothers, were found with gunshot wounds 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."

A 14 and 15-year-old were arrested yesterday and are still being questioned in connection with the shooting.

Anyone with any information is urged to call 0208 733 4774 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
