Three people have been shot outside a London Tube station this evening.
Emergency services rushed to the scene on Kingsbury High Road in Brent at 9.45pm this evening.
No arrests have been made and a cordon has been put in place.
Social media was awash with images showing a heavy police and ambulance presence at the scene.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: ‘Police and London Ambulance Service were alerted at around 2145hrs on Monday, 20 August, to reports of shots fired in Kingsbury Road, NW9.
‘Officers from Brent attended the location along with London Ambulance Service.
‘They found three people suffering injuries. We await assessment of their condition.
‘A crime scene is in place and local roads are closed.

Kingsbury Tube station on the Jubilee line was shut down as officers responded to the shooting.

‘London Underground tickets are being accepted on local bus services.’
The shooting tonight comes just hours after shots were fired outside a school in west London.
Armed police were dispatched shortly after 4pm today after witnesses reported hearing three gunshots outside the Kennet West Skills Centre.
No students were in the school but building contractors working inside the building at the time of the incident spoke of how they ducked for cover after hearing the gunshots.
In the earlier incident, a motorbike driver is said to have opened fire on a white Volvo on Kennet Road. No arrests were made at the earlier incident, but there is no suggestion the two shootings are linked.
