A teenager arrested after the fatal shooting of a young RAF air cadet in Newham has been released on bail.

The 19-year-old man was taken into custody on Wednesday on suspicion of conspiring to murder Adbul Mayanja, 19, who was shot in the chest near Maryland Station in Well Street on August 25.

Two men, aged 22 and 23, were arrested on the same charge on Sunday and have since been released on bail to a date in early October.

Detectives continue to appeal for information from anyone who was in Well Street or the surrounding area around the time of the suspected murder.

Investigation lead Det Insp Paul Considine said: “Any information, no matter how insignificant, may prove vital in helping us confirm what happened that night.
