Abdallah Salaheedin, 28, of Spring Gardens, Highbury, and Bobby Lawrence, 21, of Canonbury Street, Canonbury, stood before the Old Bailey charged with murder and possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence.

Both were remanded in custody to return and enter a plea on January 10.

A talented Tang Soo Do fighter, Jordan, 20, trained for many years at the London Black Belt Academy at Newham Leisure Centre, in Prince Regent Lane, Beckton.

He was shot answering a door in Bethnal Green on October 3.

A 29-year-old and a 21-year-old man were arrested at the scene in connection with his death but were subsequently released with no further action.
