London shooting: 4 injured, including child, at funeral

A seven-year-old girl and three women have been injured in a shooting outside a funeral in north London.

The Metropolitan Police said the incident took place in the vicinity of St Aloysius R.C. Church near Euston station where a funeral was taking place and initial enquiries suggest the shots were fired from a moving vehicle which was then driven away, Sky News reports.

Officers said three women – aged 48, 54, and 41 – were taken to hospital following the incident in Phoenix Road.
