Scotland Yard has arrested a second man in connection with the broad daylight killing of a man in Hackney, east London. Armed officers and paramedics rushed to Chatsworth Road just after 1pm on Saturday, September 26, to reports a 25-year-old man had been shot. The victim died at the scene.
Reports suggested the victim was targeted by a gang of assailants as he walked near to shops and slumped to the ground of a shop floor before he died. Officers soon arrested a man in his 20s who was close to the scene on suspicion of murder.
No further action will be taken against him in relation to the murder, but he was further arrested for possession of an offensive weapon. He has been bailed pending further enquires to a date yet to be confirmed.
However on Sunday police made a second arrest, that of a man in his mid-20s, who was detained on Sunday, 27 September, on suspicion of murder and driving related offences. He currently remains in custody at an east London police station.
Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command (HMCC) are investigating and they continue to appeal to anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information to come forward.
Anyone who witnessed the shooting or the events leading up to the incident is asked to contact the Metropolitan police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
