Errol was shot in the seOne nightclub on Weston Street at approximately 5.40am on Sunday 5 October.

It is believed he was approached by a man who produced a gun and shot him once from close range.

After being shot he was helped outside by his friends and an ambulance called. He was taken to the Royal London Hospital where despite efforts of medical staff he died at 11.50am.

Detectives have renewed their appeal for anyone who witnessed the shooting or who has any information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8247 4554 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

"It isn't helpful to the reputation of a fantastic part of London with so much going for it that we have another killing here," he added.
