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.
