Police have arrested a man over a shotgun attack on three teenage girls, one of whom was holding a baby.

The victims, aged 17, 18 and 19, were all taken to hospital after the attack in John Fearon Walk, near Queen's Park, on 29 September.

The baby was unhurt and all three teenagers have left hospital.

The 22-year-old suspect was arrested at an address in north-west London. He was taken into custody in central London but has since been bailed.

The victims were in a back garden talking to a group of boys when the gunman opened fire.

At the time police called it a "random, reckless act".

Officers said at the time they did not believe the teenagers were the intended targets.
