He was later identified as Kelvin Odunuyi, from the Barnet area.

A post mortem examination was held at Haringey Public Mortuary on Monday, 12 March and cause of death was given as a gunshot wound to the head.

A 21-year-old man [A] was arrested on suspicion of murder in the Archway area on Sunday, 11 March during an armed operation. He was later released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Officers from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command continue to investigate.

DCI Luke Marks of the Homicide and Major Crime Command leading the investigation, said: “Kelvin was a young man not yet out of his teens when he was ruthlessly gunned down, leaving his family utterly devastated and bereft.

“Enquiries have led us to believe that a pillion passenger on a moped that had mounted the pavement fired several shots in Kelvin’s direction before speeding off.

“It is vital that we identify the people behind this shooting, and would urge anyone with information about Kelvin’s murder to come forward.”

Anyone who has information concerning this case but has not yet come forward is asked to contact the Incident Room on 02083580200, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting CAD 124/08March.
