Two arrests following East End street shooting death
Two men have been arrested in connection with the police investigation into the death of printworker Wayne Stockdale who was shot in the street in East London while riding his bike.
His family are still waiting for his body to be released for burial following his death in hospital on May 8, two days after the shooting at Knapp Road in Bromley-by-Bow, less than a mile from his home in Poplar.
A 29-year-old was arrested in Hackney on Friday for questioning and given police bail, to return in July pending further inquiries.
The arrest came days after a 19-year-old was arrested at Poplar and taken to an East London police station, bailed to return later this month.
Wayne was 40 when he gave up work two years ago to look after his partner Anne Tracey who was diagnosed with cancer. Anne has since recovered and was given the ‘all clear’ when Wayne was shot.
