This evening’s shooting happened just five miles away from another grisly attack where three people were injured in a shooting outside Kingsbury Tube station last night.
Scotland Yard said two men, aged 18 and 24, and a 30-year-old woman suffered gunshot injuries.
The men remain in hospital while the woman has been discharged.
Pictures posted on social media showed police cars and ambulances at the scene, as shocked onlookers gathered outside the police cordon.
An eyewitness told the Sun Online: “There were a couple of really loud shots and people started screaming and panicking.
“The guy who was shot started screaming and some guys sped off in a car.
“I didn’t see how many – I wish I had got my eyes on the car.”
