Three men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 20-year-old man was shot dead in north-west London.

The Met said officers were called at about 01:30 GMT to Elgar Avenue in Harlesden, after reports of shots being fired.

The man was pronounced dead in hospital at 09:40. His relatives have been told.

Two men, aged 22 and 49, and the 49-year-old woman, have been released on bail. The other man remains in custody.

Police believe the victim was involved in an altercation at an address in Mulberry Court, during which he was shot.

A post-mortem examination is due to be held later.
