Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder this morning after a teenager was gunned down in Clapton.

Joseph Burke-Monerville, who is due to be buried tomorrow, was shot dead while sitting in a car with his twin and older brothers in February.

Two men, aged 18 and 19, were arrested by the Homicide and serious Crime squad and taken to a north London police station.

Earlier this week the family of the 19-year-old victim, from Canonbury, revealed Joseph’s 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.

Police still want to talk to anyone with information about the shooting - call the incident room on 020 8345 3985 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
