Detectives continue to appeal for information following a murder in Thamesmead.

Police were called to Erebus Drive, to reports of shots being fired at 04.30am on Sunday, February 1.

While officers made their way to the incident they came across two cars stopped in the road in Western Way, Thamesmead - a dark blue Ford Focus and a grey Audi A3 - containing three occupants.

One of the people in the Ford Focus had gunshot wounds.

London Ambulance Service were called and the man, aged in his 20s, was taken to a London hospital where he died at approximately 06.30am.

The two other men in the cars were not arrested.

The man has been formally identified as Clheve Massi, aged 23, from Hackney.

A post-mortem examination held at Greenwich mortuary gave cause of death as a gunshot wound.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating the murder and anyone with information should contact police on the non-emergency line 101 or anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A total of 15 people have been arrested in connection with the investigation. Five have been bailed to return pending further enquiries. Ten have been released without further action.
