De to guttene ble skutt i Wealdstone High Street.

To gutter på 13 og 15 år ble skutt og såret i London søndag ettermiddag. De ble skutt med et par minutters mellomrom i bydelen Harrow nordøst i London.

13-åringen ble skutt i hodet med hagle.

A 13-year-old boy has survived after being blasted in the head with a shotgun pellet minutes after another teen was shot on the same London high street.

Scotland Yard said two boys, aged 13 and 15, suffered head injuries in separate shootings on Wealdstone High Street in Harrow, north west London this afternoon.

Det ble først meldt at den ene gutten var 12 år, men politiet rettet det senere til 13.

Guttene ble fraktet til sykehus og skal begge være utenfor livsfare.

Ingen er så langt pågrepet. Politiet er usikre på om det er noen link mellom sakene.

Kebab shop manager Cemalettin SimSek said: «I didn’t see anything to do with the shooting because I was working but then at around 1.30pm I saw loads of police appear in the High Street, too many of them.”

“There were about five or six ambulances that arrived too – I have no idea what happened.”

Bystander Ajay Ramesh Vaghela added: «It’s just a small section of the road that’s closed by police by Specsavers. I was going to the gym and saw the police cars there.

Politiet har ikke funnet noe våpen, skriver Daily Mirror.

Skuddene mot de to guttene skjedde bare timer etter at en 17-åring ble skutt og drept i en antatt drive-by skyting i sørlige London lørdag kveld.

The teenager, named by his grief-stricken mother as Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton, was found with critical injuries on Warham Street in Kennington, Southwark.

Rhyhiem is the 15th teenager to be killed in London since Christmas and comes amid a terrifying spate of violent crimes in the capital, where police are investigating more than 60 alleged murders so far this year.
