The two 18-year-olds and 19-year-old were held on suspicion of robbery after Oliver Tetlow was shot dead after a gunman open fire in Church Road on March 9.

The killer used a ‘high-powered weapon’ believed to be an ‘Uzi’ before fleeing in a dark coloured car with blacked out windows.

Detectives investigating the murder believe the 27-year-old was not the intended target and his killing was in revenge for a robbery where a man from the Church End Estate was targeted by rivals from South Kilburn.

A video showing gang members from Church End holding a gold watch and several pieces of jewellery believed to have been stolen during the robbery was posted online hours before Mr Tetlow was murdered.

Mr Tetlow’s mother, Pamela Humphrey, has appealed for information leading to her son’s killer.

She said: “It wasn’t a killing, it was an execution. I miss my son very much. Our family miss him very much; he was loved and is still loved.

“The only way to stop this happening again is for people to come forward and provide information that will see the killer and accomplices brought to trial as soon as possible. These people claim to have no fear but they so have one overriding fear, and that is of being caught.

“Let’s reflect that fear by passing information that will see them being caught.”

Four other man aged 21, 23, 24 and 29, who were arrested and bailed on suspicion of Mr Tetlow’s murder will answer bail later this month.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call 0208 358 0200 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
