Lee Wallace, 25, of Broadway, Loughton, who died on November 9 following a shooting in Islington

The 28-year-old of Horatio Street was found with gunshot wounds following reports of a shooting outside Strang House in Britannia Row, Islington.

Police were called at approximately 4.30am.

He was taken to an east London hospital but died in the early hours of yesterday morning.

There are no further suspect details at this time.

Next of kin for both men have been informed.

Det Chief Insp Stephen Clayman, who has been placed in charge of the incident room in Barking, said: “We appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident who may have seen or heard anything suspicious, or has any information about this incident, to contact us in confidence.”
