Two further arrests in Marcus Innocent murder

November 26, 2012, 10:56 am

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

Police were called at approx. 18.20hrs on Monday 19 November to reports
of an incident in Woolwich.

Marcus Innocent, 35 (22.5.77), of Kingsman Street SE18, was pronounced
dead at the scene.

A post-mortem gave cause of death as a gunshot wound to the stomach
Prior to the murder, a group consisting of 15-20 people, described as
black and white individuals, were seen congregating behind a parade of
shops in Kingsman Street at the junction with Lord Warwick Street.

Police believe Mr Innocent was initially set upon by one person within
this group and then by a larger number, after which he was shot.

Some of the group were seen to run down Lord Warwick Street towards
Frances Street, whilst others got into cars parked in Lord Warwick
Street by the rear of the shops. These cars then drove off.

An incident room has opened under DCI Chris Le Pere (Trident).

DCI Le Pere said: “I appeal to anyone who was in the area of Lord
Warwick Street and Kingsman Street that evening who saw this group or
who may have seen the events leading up to this murder.

“If you witnessed this shooting, or the events leading up to or
immediately after it, please call the incident room.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8247
