A crime scene remains in place today as detectives investigate the shooting.

Chief Superintendent Roy Smith, borough commander for the North West BCU, said: ‘Firstly my thoughts are with the victim’s family and loved ones and I know colleagues will be working hard to support them.

‘Officers from every part of the Met are out on our streets using every tactic available to stop mindless violence like this.

‘I am incredibly proud of and grateful to colleagues from both the Met and London Ambulance Service who rushed towards danger to try and save this young man’s life – as they would do for any one of us.

‘We can only combat violence like this by working together and we really do need your help and support.

‘Officers will be out on patrol in the local area over the coming days and I would ask that you stop and talk with them if you have any information which might assist our investigation.’

The latest Met Police murder investigation, which is the 78th in the capital this year,  comes after a 17-year-old boy was stabbed to death with a machete in front of horrified shoppers on Oxford Street in an unrelated incident. 

Shoppers looked on as Jeremy Meneses-Chalarca was chased by a man wielding a machete at 5.30pm on Saturday. 

Jeremy’s heartbroken next-door neighbour broke down in tears when she visited the murder scene this week.

She said: ‘He was a sweet boy and he was always smiling. He was a very intelligent boy and he was very good at maths. It is so terrible. He only celebrated his 17th birthday in July.’

The woman told how she lives next to his mother, who is from Colombia, adding: ‘She is not very good right now.

‘My daughter came to me last night and showed me a picture of Jeremy next to a dove, but I thought it cannot be true.

‘He was studying at college, but he never talked about what he wanted to do next. He was very quiet, he was not outspoken, but a very friendly boy.’

Three men aged 18 have been arrested on suspicion of murder. Two were also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Last week, a man and woman were found dead hours apart from each other in a potential murder-suicide in Dagenham.

The woman, in her 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene in east London at roughly 12.50pm on August 8. Her death is being treated as suspicious.

Two hours later, a man, also in his 30s, was found dead on a road less than a mile away. His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Detectives believe the two deaths are linked and are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.
