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.

His brother David, 32, was shot in the arm while a third bullet grazed Jonathan.
Despite being injured, David drove until he found a police car.
In July, the shooting was re-enacted on Crimewatch along with a heartfelt appeal from the family.
Police also offered a £20,000 reward for information that would lead to the Jospeh’s killers.
No further action will be taken against a 26-year-old, 25-year-old, 23-year-old, 18-year-old and three 19-year-old men and a 16-year-old boy arrested in connection with the investigation.
