An 11-year-old girl was just one the people injured during a shooting in Mitcham yesterday.

Police were called at 5.40pm on March 24 to reports of shots fired in Figges Marsh off London Road.

A 30-year-old woman and an 11-year-old girl were found suffering shotgun pellet injuries. Both were known to each other, but are not related.

They were taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment.

A spokesman for the Met said: "We understand the woman suffered pellet injuries to her back, and the girl a pellet wound to her leg.

"Neither is believed to have been seriously injured.

"A short time later, police were alerted to two men – both aged in their late teens – who had self-presented at a south London hospital suffering shotgun pellet injuries which are not believed to be serious."

A large group of men had been seen in the area prior to the shots being fired and enquiries are ongoing to track down these people. Detectives are urging anyone in this group who has not yet spoken with police to come forward.

There have been no arrests at this stage.

Police are also asking witnesses or anyone with information to contact them on 101 and quote CAD5607/24March.
