The man who was fatally shot in Wood Green on Sunday has been named as Camilo Palacio by detectives.

Emergency services were alerted that shots had been fired in the High Road at about 9.30pm on July 24.

London’s Air Ambulance was scrambled, along with the London Ambulance Service and police officers, including firearms officers, and 23-year-old Camilo - who had been shot in his chest - was given first aid at the scene.

Despite their efforts, Camilo, who was from Enfield,  was pronounced dead at 10pm.

His next of kin are aware and are being supported by specialist officers.

A post-mortem examination found his cause of death was a gunshot wound to the chest.

DCI Perry Benton, who is leading the investigation, said: “My officers are very keen to hear from anyone who can help us identify the person responsible for Camilo’s death.

“A young man’s life has been brutally ended on a public street and a family is now struggling to come to terms with their loss – if ever there was a time to break the wall of silence, this is it.
