A teenage boy who was shot in Brixton has been taken to hospital.

Police were called by the London Ambulance Service last night at around 9.45pm to reports of a shooting in Fairmount Road.

Specialist firearms officers were sent to a house in the street.

A 16-year-old boy was found there with a gunshot injury.

He was treated at the scene before being taken to a South London hospital, where his condition has been assessed as not life-threatening.
