A WITNESS appeal has been launched after a 16-year-old boy was shot in the leg in Harlesden last night.
Detectives are seeking information about the incident, which happened in Burns Road at around 10pm.
Police were called by the London Ambulance Service to reports of a man suffering a gunshot wound to the leg.
He was taken to a central London hospital, where he remains in a stable condition.
It is believed that the victim was walking in Burns Road when three boys cycled past him in the direction of Crown Hill Road. He heard two gun shots and realised he had been shot.
The suspects are described as wearing dark clothing and black hooded tops. They cycled off down Burns Road towards Ashdon Road or St Mary's Road.
There have been no arrests.
Trident, the MET's specialist gun crime investigation unit, are looking into the incident and enquiries continue.
Detective Chief Inspector Mick Foote, of Trident, said: "I am appealing for anyone who may have been in the area of Burns Road or Crown Hill Road at the time of this incident and who may have seen something which may be of interest to the enquiry to contact us."
Anyone with information is asked to call the Incident Room on 020 8733 4774 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
