A man has been arrested in hospital after a reveller was murdered near the famous Ministry of Sound nightclub, police said today.

Shots were fired and a 25-year-old man was found dead in the street outside the south London venue in the early hours of Bank Holiday Monday.

A post-mortem examination found he died from head injuries believed to be caused by a collision with a vehicle, Scotland Yard said.

A second man, 29, was taken to a south London hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to the shoulder outside the club.

He has been arrested in connection with the incident but remains in hospital.

Police said his condition was not thought to be serious.

A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said: "Inquiries continue to establish the circumstances of the incident. At this early stage we retain an open mind as to any motive."
