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.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said:

"A woman and an 11-year-old child were treated by the London Ambulance Service for injuries believed to have been caused by a firearm. They have been taken to hospital."

"A large group of males had been seen in the road prior to the firearm being discharged and inquiries are ongoing to locate these individuals."

"It is believed that two further people - who subsequently self-presented at a nearby hospital - were injured during the incident."
