The Specialist Crime North Reactive team are investigating the incident.
DS Val John-Baptiste, of Specialist Crime North, said:
“I need to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or saw anything suspicious in and around Clarence Gardens, NW1.
“We thoroughly investigate every shooting in London – every incident and every weapon on our streets is of great concern to us.
“We know that Londoners feel exactly the same, and that’s why it is vital that anyone with information shares with us what they know, either directly with police or anonymously via Crimestoppers.”
Police appeal to anyone with footage of the incident and or any information to call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting reference CAD 7619/14 August.
