London bloodshed continues as man shot dead outside busy tube station

London’s violent crime epidemic continued last night as a man was shot dead outside a busy Tube station.

Commuters heard gunshots ring out at Queensbury station in north-west London at around 9pm on Tuesday.

Armed police responded to the scene where a man in his thirties was found critically injured.

He was treated by paramedics but died at the scene.

The incident left travellers shaken.

Hansa Vagadiya tweeted: "what’s going on about Queensbury station? I’ve never been so scared getting home."

Police said a man in his twenties also attended a north London hospital with gunshot injuries minutes after the incident.

He is in a stable condition.

No arrests have been made and inquiries continue.

On Sunday night, police in nearby Kilburn tweeted a terrifying image of an axe they said officers found in the waistband of a 14-year-old boy.

He has been arrested and charged, police said.

"This is why stop and search is so important!" the force tweeted.

A crime scene remains in place in Cumberland Road, HA8 and in Essolado Way, HA8 where the shooting attacks are believed to have taken place.

Forensic analysis including ballistic examination is underway and local CCTV footage in the area is being obtained for review.

Police in Brent continue to deal alongside colleagues from the Homicide and Major Crime Command.

Detective Inspector Justin Howick said: "I would like to appeal to anyone with information to contact police at the earliest opportunity.

"Detectives are busy at the scene and working to build a clear picture of the circumstances of this fatal attack."
