Case synopsis:

Ola Raji, 20, was shot dead in Peckham on 21 April 2015.

He was attacked by two suspects as he rode into the estate on a bicycle at around 10.30pm.

Mr Raji, from Peckham, was found lying on the ground between two parked cars in East Surrey Grove.

He had been stabbed as well as shot and was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at hospital. The postmortem gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the chest.

Detectives have so far made five arrests in connection with the investigation but no one has yet been charged.

Detectives appealed for witnesses who may have seen the suspects fleeing on foot in the direction of Sumner Road from Cator Road.

On 5 May police made further appeals for witnesses in a black 2011 BMW parked in East Surrey Grove opposite the Damilola Taylor Centre.

In September 2015 police made a further appeal for information. Detectives also issued a CCTV still of two suspects entering East Surrey Grove.

Detective Chief Inspector Will Reynolds, from the Met's Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: " I would like to reiterate previous appeals for information and witnesses to come forward.

“I would like also like to eliminate the driver and occupants of a silver vehicle which was parked in East Surrey Grove, outside the Damilola Taylor centre, a few minutes after Ola was shot.

"I do understand that some people may not wish to speak directly to police. In that event, I urge them to call the independent charity Crimestoppers. The Crimestoppers' guarantee of anonymity has never been broken and callers are not even asked for their name.

"Any information that is provided to my officers will be treated in the strictest confidence. We know there were a number of people in East Surrey Grove at the time of the murder. I appeal for those people to help us by telling us what they know, either in person or anonymously through Crimestoppers. If you know something, please make the call."
