The teenager and four men arrested over the murder of Antonio Rodney-Cole in Hackney have all been bailed.
On Wednesday December 4 two men aged 19 and 22 were arrested in Hackney and taken into custody at separate east London police stations.
They were bailed on Friday to return to the stations next month.
Three further suspects – two men aged 24 and 20, along with a 16-year old were arrested by Thames Valley police in the Thames Valley area on Friday night.
They have been bailed to return to a central London police station later this month.
Antonio Rodney-Cole, 22, of Colvestone Crescent, Dalston, died at the wheel of his car in Marton Road at around 11.30am last Monday morning, just yards away from Stoke Newington Church Street.
He had been stabbed three times in his leg, but collapsed from loss of blood.
