A woman has been taken to hospital with gunshot wounds after an incident at the Hanwell YMCA on Bordars Road.

Shortly before 7pm on Monday (26 September) the 23-year-old victim was found injured. Her condition is understood to be serious but not life-threatening.

Witnesses report that four shots were fired through the glass doors at the entrance to the building. Armed police were on the scene shortly afterwards.

A police spokesperson said, "At 6.58pm on Monday, September 26 police were called to Bordars Road, Hanwell following reports of a firearms discharge. Officers attended with the London Ambulance Service and found a 23-year-old woman with gunshot wounds.

"She has been taken to hospital, her condition is not life threatening. An investigation is under way. Anyone with information should call 101 giving the reference 6219/26SEP. Information can also be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111."

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “"We sent a number of resources including an ambulance, an incident response officer and London’s air ambulance. We treated a person at the scene before taking them a London major trauma centre as a priority.”

A YMCA spokesperson said, “On the evening of Monday, September 26, a serious incident occurred at YMCA Hanwell, West London. We are very sorry to report that during this incident a female resident suffered a serious injury which required the emergency services to be called.
