In a new report by BBC, investigators from the Metropolitan police arrested five men between the ages of 18 and 24, a 16-year-old boy, and a 35-year-old woman, on suspicion of being involved in the murder.
Speaking on the development, Wayne Jolley, a detective chief inspector who leads the investigation, says: “This is a significant development in the investigation, however, we will not be complacent.
“We will continue to work hard to make sure those responsible are brought to justice. I believe this murder to have been a case of mistaken identity, perpetrated recklessly, and with no regard whatsoever for human life.
“Alexander’s death is a tragic reminder that carrying a gun has devastating consequences, I urge anyone with information to come forward and speak with us.”
The reports said all the suspects have been taken into custody while a white Range Rover believed to be linked to the shooting was found burnt 25 minutes after the police were called.
