Detectives investigating the fatal shooting of Patrick Anzy in Hackney have made two arrests.

[A] a 14-year-old male and [B] 25-year-old male were arrested on Thursday, 13 May on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder. Both remain in custody.

An investigation was launched after police were called to reports of shots fired in Gillett Square, Dalston at 00.56hrs on Saturday, 8 May.

Officers attended and found a seriously injured man, 31-year-old Patrick Anzy.

Despite the efforts of emergency services, Patrick was pronounced dead at the scene.

Next of kin have been informed but formal identification awaits.

A post-mortem examination took place on Tuesday, 11 May and confirmed the cause of death as gunshot injuries.

Detective Inspector Andy McDonald, the officer in the case, said: "This investigation is making progress, evidenced by these arrests, but I am still very keen to speak to anyone who was in the Gillett Square area at the time of the shooting who may have witnessed the murder.

"Patrick was attacked in Boleyn Road, N16, in the early hours of Saturday, 8 May and, at the time, I believe there may have been a number of people around who may have seen or heard something.

"Any information, no matter how small, could prove to be crucial to this investigation and help secure some justice for Patrick's family."

Enquiries continue.

Anyone with information or any witnesses are urged to call 101, reference CAD 412/08May.
