Two more men have been charged following a drive-by shooting outside a funeral in central London.

Four women aged 48, 54, 41, 21 and two girls, aged 11 were injured in the attack outside St Aloysius Church in Phoenix Road, Euston, in January. The 48-year-old woman remains in hospital.

On Thursday, Tyrell La Croix, 22, from Camden, and Jordan Walters, 23, from Brent, were charged with six counts of wounding with intent.

Both men are set to appear before Willesden Magistrates' Court.

It comes after Alrico Nelson Martin, 19, from Kilburn, was charged on Wednesday with possession of a shotgun with intent to endanger life and six counts of conspiracy to wound with intent.
