TEHRAN, Jan. 14 (MNA) – Local media in the United Kingdom reported on Saturday afternoon that four people were injured in a shooting.

Four people, including a seven-year-old girl, have been injured in a shooting outside a funeral in north London, the Metropolitan police said, according to Guardian.
