Detective Inspector John Marriott, of the Met’s Homicide team, said: “I am continuing to appeal for anyone who was in the area at the time, who saw or heard anything suspicious to contact police.

“The shooting took place not far from Plumstead Railway Station and I would urge anyone who was commuting to or from this station to come forward. It was also sunny at the time and a number of people would have been enjoying the weather in the area of Plumstead Gardens; I need you to come forward.



“Although we have now made five arrests I am continuing to ask for your help to progress this investigation.”
