This is the first picture of the Nigerian teen murdered during a frenzied 24-hour bloodshed in London in which three young people were killed and others wounded in separate attacks.

Eniola Aluko, 19, was shot dead at 4.54pm on Friday in a car park in Plumstead, southeast London.

Armed police and paramedics dashed to the scene but were unable to save the victim, from Thamesmead, southeast London.

Five youths as young as 16 have been arrested in connection with the death.

Three boys aged between 16 and 17 and a 17-year-old girl were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Detective Inspector John Marriott, said: "I am continuing to appeal for anyone who was in the area at the time, who saw or heard anything suspicious, to contact police.

"The shooting took place not far from Plumstead Railway Station and I would urge anyone who was commuting to or from this station to speak with us. It was also sunny at the time and a number of people would have been enjoying the weather in the area of Plumstead Gardens."
