A man was shot and another stabbed in a violent night in Westminster.

A 26-year-old man was rushed to hospital with a gunshot wound after neighbours alerted police to the shooting in Beethoven Street at 7.45pm on Sunday.

Armed police swooped on the residential road where they also found a 19-year-old nearby with a non-life threatening stab injury.

A third man, 29, was also found injured and taken to hospital. Police said his condition is not yet known.

A crime scene remains in place in the area of Beethoven Street and Bruckner Street as officers stepped up patrols and increased their stop-and-search powers.
