A teenage boy and a woman are in hospital after a double shooting in south London.

Police and paramedics were called to Somerleyton Road in Brixton at about 23:00 BST on Wednesday.

They found a woman, 34, with non-serious gunshot pellet injuries.

Later, a 16-year-old boy was admitted to a south London hospital with gunshot wounds. Officers believe the shootings are linked.

The Metropolitan Police previously reported that the boy was in a critical condition, and that a man in his 30s had also been shot on Somerleyton Road.

However, officers have since said the boy's injuries are not life-threatening and that the man was unharmed.

No arrests have been made.
