Police investigating the murder of a teenager found in a burnt-out car in south-east London have arrested a second person.

Firefighters found the body of Samuel Ogunro after the fire on Jowett Street in Peckham on Tuesday. He had died of a bullet wound to the head.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested on Wednesday and released on bail.

On Saturday another man, 19, was arrested on suspicion of murder. He is being held in a south London station.

Officers said two to three suspects had been spotted running from the Rover car, number plate V683 DPN, while it was on fire.

The vehicle may have been taken away for a time before being returned to the scene prior to the bank holiday weekend, police said.
