Three men have been arrested over a fatal shooting outside a primary school in north-west London.

Shawn Callum was found wounded outside Stonebridge School in Shakespeare Avenue, Stonebridge, early on Sunday.

Police believe Mr Callum, 26, of Maida Vale, was shot as he left a private birthday party on the school premises.

Officers said an 18-year-old was arrested on Wednesday and two more men, aged 21 and 23, were held on Thursday. All three are in police custody.

Up to 200 people were believed to have attended the party on Saturday night and police had appealed for guests to come forward with information about the shooting.

Mr Callum died in hospital. The killing is being investigated by officers from Operation Trident, which deals with gun crime in the London's black community.
