Man killed in double shooting at New Year's Eve party

One man has died and another man is critically ill after a shooting at a New Year's Eve party in south London.

Police said the shooting took place at the Newton Arms pub in Queen's Road, Croydon, at about 0500 GMT.

The 34-year-old man who died was taken to hospital from the private party, where he was pronounced dead.

The wounded man, 26, remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition. No-one has yet been arrested over the shooting.

The Metropolitan Police's Trident team, which investigates gun crime in the black community, is looking into the incident.

Police said the suspect - a black male - escaped in a dark coloured 4X4 vehicle.
