New arrest in Milton Keynes double murder inquiry

A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murders of two Somalian teenagers in Buckinghamshire.

Mohamed Abdi Farah, 19, and Amin Ahmed Ismail, 18, were shot on the Fishermead estate in Milton Keynes on 26 May.

Five men, four in their 20s and one aged 31, and a 13-year-old boy have already been released on bail in connection with the murders.

Police are due to hold a meeting later to hear the concerns of residents at the Trinity Centre, Fishermead.

Foreign language

Thames Valley Police said Det Supt Rob Mason, who is leading the investigation, would provide an update at the meeting and speak to local people.

On Monday police said they were hunting a group of six men seen shortly after the shooting.

Detectives said they were all black and spoke in a foreign language.

Both victims were from the Somali community and were known to police for low-level criminal activity.

Detectives have so far ruled out the theory that the killings were gang-related.
