Police arrest suspect in London drive-by shooting

Police announced early Monday that they have arrested a man on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with a weekend drive-by shooting at a funeral in north London that left six people wounded.

Detectives investigating the shooting outside St. Aloysius Church in Euston arrested the 22-year-old man, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

"The man was arrested after a car was stopped in Cricklewood Lane, Barnet shortly before 4 p.m. on Sunday, 15 January. He has been taken into custody," it added.

The incident took place at 1.29 p.m. local time in the vicinity of St. Aloysius Church on Phoenix Road, where a funeral was taking place.

Three women -- aged 48, 54 and 41 -- were taken to a central hospital, where their injuries were assessed as non-life threatening.

A seven-year-old girl remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. A 12-year-old girl with a minor leg injury was discharged.

A 21-year-old woman was also taken to a central London hospital and her condition has been assessed as non-life-threatening.

"Any shooting incident is unacceptable, but for multiple people, including two children, to be injured in a shooting in the middle of a Saturday afternoon is shocking," Police Superintendent Ed Wells said Saturday.
