A man has been shot and another stabbed near London’s Hyde Park on a weekend of bloodshed in the capital.
Emergency services were called to Upper Berkeley Street, a short distance from Marble Arch Tube station, shortly after 2am on Sunday.
Metropolitan Police officers found one man with a gunshot injury and another man with a stab and head injury. The men, aged in their 20s, were rushed to hospital.
It came just hours after a young man was stabbed to death in front of horrified shoppers on Oxford Street.
Also on Saturday, a man and a woman were found dead following a suspected murder-suicide in Dagenham, east London.
A spokesman for the force said the first victim’s condition is serious but stable while the second man’s injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.
He added: “Enquiries into the circumstances continue.
“One arrest was made at the scene for possession of class A drugs.
“A crime scene is in place.”
Any witnesses or those with information are asked to call 101 ref CAD 1541/9 Aug.
