Three people have been arrested following a shooting on the Regent's Park Estate, before armed police mobilised at the scene as part of a linked operation on Thursday (August 19).

One man and two teenage boys were arrested before the armed operation. Officers arrested a 22-year-old man on Tuesday (August 17) on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent. He remains in custody. 

On Wednesday (August 18) a 16-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and robbery, and later for possession of a firearm with intent. 

A 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply, and then for possession of a firearm with intent. 

The four people hospitalised by the shooting are a 19-year-old woman; a 17-year-old woman; a 28-year-old man and a 73-year-old woman.
