A man has died and a woman has been critically injured in a shooting at a residential address in west London, police have said.

Officers were called to Felix Road, near West Ealing railway station, at about 14:50 BST to reports of shots being fired.

The 32-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The woman, 28, was taken to hospital in a critical condition. She was later said to be stable.

No arrests have been made.

The shots were fired in a flat in Felix Road. A police cordon remains in place.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "A 32-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

"A woman in her late 20s has gone to a west London hospital where she remains in a critical condition."

A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "We sent two ambulance crews, a single responder in a car, London's air ambulance and one duty manager to the scene.

"Sadly, despite our best efforts, one patient died at the scene.

"A second patient, who is a female with a shoulder injury, was taken to hospital as a priority."
