A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a fatal shooting in central London in the early hours of New Year's Day.

Aarron McKoy had been at Clerkenwell House in Clerkenwell celebrating his 22nd birthday as well as new year before he was shot.

Police believe he may have been involved in a disturbance in a wine bar just before he was killed.

He was found wounded in Portpool Lane at 04:10 GMT and died at the scene.

It is believed that whoever shot the victim ran off towards Leather Lane.

Local businesses have been asked to supply CCTV footage so officers can check it for clues.
