It follows the arrests of a 22-year-old man on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent on Tuesday, while two boys, aged 16 and 17, were arrested on Wednesday night.

The 16-year-old was arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and robbery, as well as possession of a firearm with intent.

The 17-year-old was held on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and possession of a firearm with intent.

Another 22-year-old man was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent, and all five have been bailed until mid-September.

Shots were fired into a group of people attending the communal barbecue near Regent’s Park just before 10.10pm last Saturday.

Firearms officers were sent to the scene, along with paramedics.

The injured – a 19-year-old woman, a 17-year-old girl, a 28-year-old man and a 73-year-old woman – were taken to hospital for treatment.
