Police say a shotgun was used in a drive-by shooting outside a funeral that left six people injured - including a seven-year-old girl who remains in a life-threatening condition.
The shooting happened at around 1.30pm on Saturday, January 14 in Phoenix Road, Camden next to Euston station. A funeral was taking place at St Aloysius Roman Catholic Church, when a vehicle drove passed towards Eversholt Street and the gunman opened fire.
Police are looking for a black Toyota CH-R, which may be a 2019 model or similar.
The seven-year-old girl was one of five people hit by pellets from a shotgun.
Four women – aged 21, 48, 54 and 41 – were taken to a central London hospital.
Their injuries have been assessed as non-life threatening. The 48-year-old has potentially life changing injuries.
Police say they were told at just after 2pm that a seven-year-old girl had been taken to hospital. She remains in a stable but life-threatening condition.
A second child, a 12-year-old girl, was taken to hospital with a minor leg injury, sustained in the incident but has since been discharged.
Police say no arrests have been made, but that the vehicle from which the shots came is thought to have driven away.
Jack Rowlands, neighbourhood superintendent for Camden and Islington said: "This was a shocking incident.
"People came here to attend a funeral, to be with friends and loved ones and to mourn together. Instead they were the victims of a senseless act of violence.
