Three men arrested on suspicion of murder following the fatal shooting of Joseph Burke-Monerville have been bailed.

Mr Burke-Monerville, whose funeral takes place today, was shot in the head while sitting in a parked car in Hindrey Road, Clapton, on Sunday, February 16.

Yesterday police arrested three men, aged 18, 19 and 25, on suspicion of murder.

They have since been bailed to return in early June pending further inquiries.

Police continue to appeal for information on two suspects seen running from the scene after Mr Burke-Monerville, from Canonbury, was shot. The first is black, and the second is light-skinned - possibly of Asian or Turkish appearance. They were seen making off on foot from Hindrey Road after the shooting, heading towards the nearby Pembury Estate.

Earlier this week Mr Burke-Monerville’s family revealed his older brother had been stabbed to death in 1994.

A funeral service takes place at the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park, tomorrow, at 11am,

The family, who are Nigerian royalty, say the public are welcome and a Nigerian queen is also expected to attend.
