A 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder following fatal shooting of Nigerian prince Joseph Burke-Monerville.
The teenager, who was arrested on Sunday, has been bailed to a date in early December pending further enquiries.
Mr Burke-Monerville, 19, of Canonbury, was shot in a car on February 16 in a case of mistaken identity.
He was out with his twin brother Jonathan and older brother David.
They had parked opposite a shop in Hindrey Road, Clapton to buy a few things after going to the gym.
