A 21-year-old man was being quizzed by detectives today (Thursday) about the death of the 33-year-old who was stabbed in the neck as he cashed up the Easter Saturday takings at the store in Dalston's Kingsland shopping centre.
He was arrested after he voluntarily attended a north London police station by appointment.
Another 21-year-old man, arrested on Tuesday in connection with the death and attempted robbery at the store, has been bailed until a date in late May.
