Four men have been arrested and a firearm recovered after a vehicle stop in Queens Park.
On Thursday, 10 September at approximately 6pm, a vehicle was stopped in Kilburn Lane, W10 by officers from the Central West Violence Suppression Unit with assistance of specialist firearm officers.
During the stop, a firearm was located within the vehicle. Four men who were in the vehicle – 23; 25; 26 and 26 – were arrested on suspicion of firearm offences.
The men were taken into custody at police stations in the central west area – enquiries ongoing.
Inspector Al Connelly from the Met’s Central West Command Unit said: “Tackling violent crime remains the Met’s top priority. Taking firearms like the one found during this stop off the streets, will have potentially saved a life being lost.”
