Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a teenager was shot dead.

Tyler McDermott, 17, died in hospital after being shot in Tottenham in the early hours of Thursday (April 13).

Met Police detectives today arrested two 19-year-old men.

The investigation was launched after police were called at approximately 4.20am on Thursday to reports of a male injured in Norman Road. Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found Tyler suffering from a gunshot injury.

He was taken to hospital for treatment but died on Friday afternoon. His family continue to be supported by specialist officers.

A post-mortem examination is scheduled to take place at Poplar Mortuary on Sunday.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “These two arrests demonstrate the progress our investigation is making. However, there is still significant work to do to identify those involved in Tyler’s murder.

“There were a large number of people in the area at the time of Tyler’s murder and I am reiterating my appeal to anyone who was there, or who has information about this incident, to contact police immediately.”

Anyone with information that could assist police is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD 883/13Apr.
