Detectives investigating the murder of a Fulham man in the front car park outside HMP Wandsworth almost two year ago have arrested another suspect.

Darty Austin-Bruce, who was 20, lived in Fulham Court. He was shot on Heathfield Road in Wandsworth on May 1, 2009 at around 2.30pm and pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem gave the cause of death as multiple gunshot wounds to the torso.

The 33 year-old suspect, who lives in Fulham was arrested on March 4 on suspicion of murder and taken to a south London police station. Police say enquiries continue.

There have been several arrests in connection with this murder, and three other men have already been charged.

This crime led to a second murder which took place on the Fulham Court state shortly after Mr Austin-Bruce's funeral. Anthony Otton, 28, had been attending a wake for the murder victim at Geranium House in Fulham Court and was shot dead as he was leaving.  At the time there was widespread speculation that this was a revenge attack.

Police described the shooting as a "rarity in the borough" and stepped up patrols around the estate to reassure residents.

Detective Chief Inspector Gordon Allison (Trident) is leading the investigation into the Wandsworth Prison shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8247 4554 or call crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
