Detectives are appealing for information on the sixth anniversary of the murder of Davion Watt.
The 26-year-old was shot dead in Brixton in 2008. No murder weapon has ever been recovered.
No one has been prosecuted for the crime and police are renewing a plea for witnesses to come forward.
"Without anyone coming forward we fear that Davion's family may never get the justice they so desperately want. With our anniversary appeal, we hope that the intervening years since Davion's murder have seen the allegiances change of those that may have kept silent. And that those people can now re-examine their consciences and consider doing the right thing and help us prosecute those responsible, bringing closure to the case for Davion's family."
Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr has been filmed at a Brixton barbers shop arguing with a woman because she didn't recognise him.
In the video, posted on Youtube, the boxer - who is the currently the highest paid athlete in the world - is heard asking the woman 'Have you got Google?' and 'Do you know what Forbes magazine is?', while she retorts 'I only watch big fights - I know Mike Tyson'.
The video has since clocked up over 1.2 million views.

NBA All Star and former Croydon resident basketball player Luol Deng was in the capital today to launch the Luol Deng Academy, based at the Evelyn Grace Secondary school in Brixton.
Luol, who captained the Team GB squad at the 2012 Olympics and who has just signed for the Miami Heat in the US, was born in South Sudan which his family fled, settling in South London.
The Academy has been set up in reaction to the British government cutting all funding to the game in the UK. Deng wants to give talented young kids a proper path way into the professional game by offering professional training and for some of the most promising kids, scholarships into the US high school system.
In 2013 Luol sent an open letter to David Cameron asking him to reconsider pulling all funding, the letter got a large amount of media coverage but alas funding was completely cut.
Police are appealing for help to find a 14-year-old girl who has been missing since Saturday morning. Nelly Muhigirwa was last seen at 7am in the Middlesbrough area, but police say she has links to Brixton and may have travelled to London. Officers say it is out of character for Nelly to go missing. Anyone with information is being urged to contact Cleveland Police.
The country's most senior police chief has apologised 'unreservedly' and said it was 'inexcusable' that it had taken until now to say sorry for police failings which contributed to the death of Cherry Groce, whose shooting by an officer triggered the 1985 Brixton riots.
Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said: "I apologise unreservedly for our failings.
"I also apologise for the inexcusable fact that it has taken until now for the Met to make that public apology. Sadly this means that the person that most deserved to hear that apology, those words that we are sorry, is no longer here.
"Mrs Groce bore her suffering with dignity, and her story is a powerful reminder to all our officers of our responsibilities where we use force or plan for its possible use."
During the course of the trial, jurors heard evidence from Mrs Groce's son Lee Lawrence - aged 11 at the time of the shooting - who watched his mother being shot by police.
