London Tube Station Shooting Leaves Three Injured (PHOTOS)

Three people were reportedly injured in northwest London's Brent borough Monday night when a gunman opened fire outside the Kingsbury tube station. Police have not yet made an arrest in the case.

Roads by the tube station off of Kingsbury Road were closed to traffic in the aftermath, as was the station itself.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson told The Sun that police and ambulance services were alerted to the incident at about 9:45 p.m. local time.

Social media posts show police and ambulances gathering en masse at the scene.

"They found three people suffering injuries. We await assessment of their condition," police said.

According to The Sun, the shooting comes amid a push for a crackdown on antique guns on the streets of the UK. Local gangs are apparently making their own bullets to carry out violence with firearms that were considered "obsolete" due to a lack of compatible ammunition.

London police have investigated some 91 homicides in 2018.
