Teenage girl dies in mother's arms after London shooting

"New York has been able to bring down serious violence through a public health approach", she said.

"I was telling her 'everything is going to be okay, I just kept repeating that".

A friend described her as a "very lovable little girl in the community, she was not involved in any sort of problems with anyone".

A 21-year-old said the teenager was shot dead for "no reason at all" (Picture: EPA) Police were called at approximately 9.35pm on Monday night to reports of a shooting.

A witness said a woman, believed to be the victim's mother, began "screaming" when she discovered the girl shortly after the shooting.

Following a recent surge in violent crimes and stabbing incidents, the UK's capital has found itself outranking one of the world's most risky cities when it comes to murders. "She was just an innocent child caught up in this stupid postcode war".

The latest victim, a 20-year-old man, was stabbed to death after leaving a bar in the Earlsfield area of south west London in the early hours of Easter Sunday, according to The Daily Telegraph.

City Hall said it is "deeply concerned" but insists London "remains one of the safest [cities] in the world".
