A 19-year-old man who was shot and killed in Clapton has been named as Joseph Burke-Monerville from Islington.
Police officers were called after two men were shot while sitting in a parked car in Hindrey Road, Clapton, at about 8.20pm on Saturday.
A third man, aged 19, was also in the vehicle but he was not injured.
Joseph later died in hospital at 11.10pm, and the second victim, aged 22, is understood to be in a serious but stable condition.
Police are appealing for information on two suspects seen running from the scene.
The first man is black, and the second is light-skinned - possibly of Asian or Turkish appearance. They were seen running from Hindrey Road after the shooting, heading towards the nearby Pembury Estate.
Detective Chief Inspector Kenny McDonald said: "Our early inquiries suggest that Joseph and those he was in the car with have no links to gangs. We continue to work to try and establish the motive for this murder.
"I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time of the shooting and may have seen the incident, or two males fleeing the scene, to contact officers."
Any witnesses or anyone with information should call police on 020 8733 4211. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
There has been no arrest at present.
