Shooting at a London church leaves six injured, including a little girl in critical condition

The faithful, who came to attend a mass in homage to a mother and her daughter who died in November, fled screaming from this Catholic church in the capital when the shots rang out.

“According to initial investigations, the shots were fired from a moving vehicle which then drove away from the scene,” said the London Metropolitan Police in a statement, which appealed for witnesses.

“I heard this loud bang and thought it wasn’t normal, and the next minute everyone was screaming and screaming,” a neighbor told the PA news agency.

A mass in honor of two women

As well as the seven-year-old girl, another 12-year-old girl and four women were injured in the shooting near busy Euston station.

A witness told the MyLondon news site that the shots were fired as mourners who had attended the mass watched the release of doves that followed.
