Five men have been injured in a multiple shooting in south London which the Metropolitan Police believe was a "pre-planned attack".

Officers found four men with bullet wounds after being called to St James's Crescent, Brixton, on Friday night.

Another man attended a south London hospital later. All five, aged 16, 21, 22, 23 and 24, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

No-one has been arrested over the shooting.

Det Cons Deryck Greer said: "This was an apparently pre-planned attack that left five young men in hospital and I would appeal for anyone with information to make contact with police at the earliest opportunity."

Two of the victims, aged 23 and 24, remain in hospital in a stable condition. The others have been treated and discharged.
