Drive-by Gunmen Leave Girl In ‘Life-threatening’ Condition

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a “drive-by” shooting at a central London church left a seven-year-old girl in a life-threatening condition.

Officers were called to St Aloysius Church on Phoenix Road in Euston on Saturday where a memorial service was taking place for a young woman and her mother.

Scotland Yard said shotgun pellets were fired from a black Toyota C-HR at around 1.30pm before it was driven off.
