One man was killed and two others injured in a shooting on a busy north London road.

Officers found a 22-year-old man with fatal gunshot wounds on Green Lanes, Haringey, just after 22:30 BST on Tuesday.

A second victim was taken to hospital with injuries while a third is believed to have been shot as he rode past on his bike, the Met Police said.

Four men have been arrested on suspicion of murder.

The group, who are all aged in their early 20s, remain in police custody, Scotland Yard said.

The force added that the next of kin of the man who died have been informed.

Police discovered the second victim when a 24-year-old man took himself to hospital with gunshot injuries, which are not thought to be life-threatening.

Officers were then called to a home in the Edmonton area when a man in his 30s reported he had been shot whilst in the Green Lanes area. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police believe he was shot as he was riding a bike past the shooting.

Det Ch Insp Wayne Jolley said the victim's family had been left "traumatised" by his death.

He added: "Although four people have been arrested on suspicion of murder, I want the public to understand this is still very early in the investigation and I am sure further arrests will need to made.

"We need to take the gun and the gunman off the streets and I need the public's help to do that."
