A gang of five masked gummen launched a surprise attack on two men leaving Oriental City in Colindale last night (Thursday).

The men leapt out from behind parked cars and started firing at the two men, aged 23 and 26, as they walked through the car park of the Edgware Road shopping centre at around 10.30pm.

The men retreated back into the building as the shooting continued. Neither sustained any injuries.

There are no descriptions of the gunmen other than they wore hooded tops to hide their faces. It is not known how they left the area.

Officers from Operation Trident are investigating the shooting. Anyone with any information is asked to call 020 8733 4774.
