A murder inquiry is under way after a teenager was shot dead, police have said.

Officers were called to Chesterton Road, Plaistow, east London at about 3.20am after reports of two teenagers suffering gunshot wounds.

The victim, believed to be 16, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A second teenager, believed to be 15, was taken to an east London hospital where his condition is understood to be critical, Scotland Yard said. No arrests have yet been made.

Next of kin have been informed, though the teenager has not yet been formally identified.
