Second man bailed over Islington double killing

A SECOND man arrested over a double shooting on the streets of Islington has been released on bail.

The 41-year-old was picked up last Tuesday by detectives hunting the killers of Lee Wallace and Jayson Hassan.

He has been ordered to report back to police in mid-December, along with a 27-year-old man arrested a few days earlier.

The men, who are both believed to be from east London, were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Mr Wallace and Mr Hassan were gunned down outside Strang House, on the Cummings Estate, off Britannia Row, Islington, at 4.30am on November 9.

Residents were woken up by the sound of gunshots and ran downstairs to see if they could save the victims’ lives.

Mr Wallace, 25, of Broadway, Loughton, died at the scene. Mr Hassan, 28. of Horatio Street, Bethnal Green, died the following day in hospital.
