Men arrested in Margate on suspicion of murder following shooting in London

Arrests following the shooting of Camilo Palacio

Armed officers in Dalby Square yesterday (July 31) were present to assist a Met Police murder investigation.

Detectives investigating a fatal shooting in Haringey have made eight arrests across the south east, including in Margate.

Kent Police officers stopped a car in the Cliftonville street on behalf of the Met. Two men, aged 30  and 24. were arrested on suspicion of murder and a 17-year-old male  was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. They remain in custody at a police station in Kent and will be transferred to London in due course.

The same day two men in Harlesden were arrested on suspicion of murder and a woman was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

On the same day, officers executed a warrant at a residential address in the N8 area and arrested a 16-year-old male on suspicion of murder.

All four remain in custody at a north London police station.

Today (August 1) an 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder at City Airport. He has been taken to a police station where he remains in custody.

A murder investigation was launched after police were called at around 21:30hrs on Sunday, 24 July to reports of a shooting on High Road, N22. Officers, including firearms officers, attended and found 23-year-old Camilo Palacio with a gunshot wound.

Officers immediately provided first aid until the arrival of London’s Air Ambulance and the London Ambulance Service. Despite the efforts of the emergency services, Camilo, who was from Enfield, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin are aware and are being supported by specialist officers.

A post-mortem examination found the cause of death to have been a gunshot wound to the chest.

  1. Youth.. No way at 24 that’s adult
    A 10 year old can be arrested
    What makes a killer?
    Murders happen all the time
    Gang culture needs eradicating
    Drugs fuelled
    Drunk fuelled
    Or just an arguement that went wrong?


    Everywhere you go just say NO to murder

  2. Um..Thank you Rob
    My comment refered to the 17 year old alleged accomplice. We call them youths where I’m from.
