Two teenagers were arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday following the fatal shooting of Joseph Burke-Monerville.
The 17-year-old and 19-year-old, both male, were taken to a north London police station and bailed until early June pending further enquires.
It brings the total number of arrests in connection with the killing in February to five; on May 2 police arrested an 18, 19 and 25-year-old also on suspicion of murder. All have since been released on police bail.
Mr Burke Monerville, form Canonbury, was shot in the head while sitting in a parked car in Clapton in front of his twin and older brothers.
He was buried after an emotional service attended by more than 100 family, friends and well-wishers last week.

Police continue to appeal for information on two suspects seen running from the scene after Mr Burke-Monerville 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.
