Two more arrests have been made by police investigating the fatal shooting of a man in south-east London.

Marcus Innocent, 35, was killed last Monday after a dispute with a group of up to 20 people near shops in Kingsman Street, Woolwich.

Mr Innocent was initially attacked by one person and then by a larger number, after which he was shot.

Two men, aged 18 and 37, were arrested on Sunday and bailed. Six others have already been arrested.

The 18-year-old was bailed to January, while the 37-year-old must answer bail later this week.

Det Ch Insp Chris Le Pere said: "I appeal to anyone who was in the area of Lord Warwick Street and Kingsman Street that evening who saw this group or who may have seen the events leading up to this murder."
