Two men have been arrested by police on suspicion of murder over the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old in Greenwich in 2018.

Ethan Nedd-Bruce was murdered around 10pm on Monday, October 22, 2018, after he was shot outside Collins House on Armitage Road.

The teenager was attacked as he left a chicken shop, and was chased onto the road by a group of males in a silver car and on a motorbike, where he was attacked and killed.

At the time, the Met Police arrested a 26-year-old on suspicion of murder but he was released and no further action was taken.

But a year and a half on from the murder, two new suspects have been arrested and taken to a south London police station where they currently remain in custody.

The men, a 24-year-old and 34-year-old, were arrested on suspicion of murder on Wednesday, May 27.

According to police, Ethan had been involved in an 'altercation' on Woolwich Road minutes before the fatal attack.

As he fled, a group of males pursued him onto Armitage Road on a motorbike and in a Ford Kuga car.

Ethan was attacked and killed, with a gunshot wound being determined as the cause of death, but the 18-year-old also suffering stab wounds.

News Shopper:

The teenager lived in Charlton, and police said the attack may have been involved in a case of mistaken identity connected to a 'turf war' between two local criminal groups.

On the anniversary of his death, his mother Cherie Nedd called on those who may be "fearful" in the community to come forward to help identify her son's killer.

She said: "I believe the answers are in the community.

"There must be someone who knows what has happened, and they probably are just feeling fearful and not wanting to talk about it but somebody must have seen something that would give a clue as to what happened.

“Our hearts are completely broken. Lives have been shattered never to be repaired. Finding the murderers will not bring Ethan back, but it will help to give the family closure that we so deserve.
