Two dead after street shooting

A man and a woman were found dead after a shooting incident in west London last night. Scotland Yard said police had been called by a member of the public to a patch of open ground known as Starch Green, Shepherd's Bush, where the two bodies, and a gun, were found.

Police made no immediate statement about the possible motive for the killing, or the identities of those involved, but said only two shots had been fired.
