A shooting in South London has left four people needing hospital treatment - including a child of 11.
Police say they're looking for a large group of males seen at a park in the district of Mitcham yesterday afternoon.
None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, and no-one has been arrested.
The child was wounded in the leg , while a woman was struck in the back - they are known to each other but are not related, police said.
