Police were called to reports of a shooting in Maida Vale in the early hours last night - but it turned out the incident involved a BB gun rather than a firearm.

Officers attended a property in Shirland Road and found a 52-year-old woman suffering from a head injury; however, there is as yet no evidence that a firearm was discharged, police say.

Instead, it appears the incident involved a BB gun,

The victim was taken to hospital but her injuries are not thought to be serious.

Police had been responding to reports of a shooting shortly after midnight on Friday.

No suspects have been arrested and inquiries are ongoing.

Any witnesses, or anyone with any information, can contact police via 101, or via Twitter @MetCC.
