A 13-year-old boy is recovering after being blasted in the head with a shotgun – moments after another teenager was shot in broad daylight on a busy London high street.
Police were called just minutes apart to the shootings at two locations in close proximity in High Street, Wealdstone in Harrow, north west London, on Sunday.
Officers were called to High Street at 1.17pm to find a 15-year-old boy had been shot. Two minutes later, they were alerted by London Ambulance Service about a second victim, aged 13, who had been shot at a different location nearby.
Both boys were taken to hospital with head injuries that are not life-threatening after being hit with a shotgun, a Metropolitan Police spokesman told MailOnline.
Police said they are investigating whether the two incidents are linked, but no arrests have been made and no firearm has been recovered.
