Road closures are in place following a “drive-by” shooting that left four women and two girls injured.

Eversholt Street is currently closed both ways between Euston Station and Oakley Square following a shooting by St Aloysius Church on Phoenix Road yesterday (January 14).

A crime scene is also in place on Phoenix Road itself.

The closures are causing slight travel disruptions in the area, but Euston station is still accessible from the Euston Road end.

However bus routes 168 and 253 are being diverted from the area.


A girl, 7, still remains in critical condition after the shooting near a service held at the church.

The London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance raced to the scene after initial reports of shots fired at 1.29pm.

Three women aged 48, 54 and 41 were taken to a central London hospital.

The 48-year-old has potentially life changing injuries. The 54 and 41-year-olds' injures were assessed as non-life threatening.

A second child, 12, has been discharged with a minor leg injury and a 21-year-old woman was taken to hospital, but her injures were non-life-threatening.

Anyone with information about the attack should call 101, giving the reference 3357/14JAN.
