TWO more suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of a 22-year-old electrician on Harrow Road.

Daniel Omari Smith was shot dead after buying a takeaway at Kentucky Fried Chicken just before midnight on May 21.

Police made earlier arrests on May 24, July 21, July 29 and August 2, but the suspects were all later released on bail.

Detectives have now arrested another two men, also both aged 21, who answered bail at a central London police station on 11 August.

They were further bailed to the 14 October pending further enquiries.

Detectives continue to appeal for witnesses and information after a murder in Paddington.

DI Mark Brookes, from the team investigating the murder, said: "We believe this is likely to be gang-related and was a case of mistaken identity."

A reward of up to £20,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and prosecution.

Anyone who can assist the inquiry should call the Incident Room on 020 8733 4704.

Anyone who wishes to remain anonymous can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
