Officers executed a warrant at a residential address in the N8 area on the same day and arrested a 16-year-old male on suspicion of murder.

All four are still being held at a police station in north London.

Also on July 31, Kent Constabulary officers stopped a car in Margate on behalf of the Met. Two men, ages 30 and 24, were detained on suspicion of murder, and a 17-year-old male was detained on suspicion of assisting an offender.

On Monday, August 1, an 18-year-old man was arrested at City Airport on suspicion of murder. He was taken to a police station and is still being held there.

A murder investigation was launched after police were called to reports of a shooting on High Road, N22, around 9.30 p.m. on Sunday, July 24. Officers, including firearms officers, responded and discovered Camilo Palacio, 23, with a gunshot wound.
