Police: 'Too early to speculate' over double murder

Police are scouring CCTV footage as they try to piece together the final movements of two men who were murdered in an ambush by a hooded gang.

At the moment it's not clear why these two men were targeted and murdered. My appeal is threefold. I'm appealing to witnesses to the attack, I'm appealing for information from those who may know those responsible, and we need to understand why these two men were murdered.

It's too early to speculate on why they were murdered and we're keeping an open mind about the circumstances behind these murders, and I urge the community and members of the public to do the same.

– Detective Chief Inspector Neil Attewell, Metropolitan Police
