A woman who died after a double shooting in Kilburn, north London, in the early hours, was celebrating her 24th birthday.

Sabrina Moss, from Neasden, died in hospital after the shooting, at about 04:20 BST in Kilburn High Road.

Another woman, also 24, remains in hospital where her condition is not said to be serious.

The Met Police said they believe the victims were not the targets of the shooting.

No arrests have yet been made and local road closures remain in place.

'Innocent parties'

Detectives from the force's Homicide and Major Crime Command have begun a murder inquiry.

Det Ch Insp John Sandlin, of the Met, described the shooting as a "tragic incident".

"At this early stage, I believe the two women were innocent parties who were caught in the wrong place at the wrong time," he said.

"I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the shooting, or who saw anything suspicion in the Kilburn area early this morning, to call police.

"In particular, I need to hear from anyone who saw two males who came into the High Road from Messina Avenue and, after the shooting, made off on foot back along Messina Avenue."
