Detectives investigating the murder of 21-year-old Cem Duzgun in Upper Clapton, continue to appeal for witnesses and information six months on.

A reward of £20,000 is now available for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for his murder.

A Turkish man, Mr Duzgun lived with his family in Islington and worked as a sales assistant at a clothes store in Croydon.

He was playing pool inside the Clapton FC Club (a Turkish social club), 64 Upper Clapton Rd, Hackney E5 at approximately 10.45pm on Monday 5 October 2009, when two men entered and opened fire from the doorway. Detectives do not believe he was the intended target, but rather that the suspects simply fired indiscriminately into the club.

The two men then left the scene on foot heading in separate directions – one north past Clapton BR station (next to the venue), before turning right to go east into Southwold Rd. The second turned left on leaving the club and ran south along Upper Clapton Rd, then left into Cleveleys Rd.

Meanwhile police have released CCTV images of two suspects. They are described as follows:

The first suspect is described as a light-skinned black man, in his early 20s, of medium height and slim build, wearing a navy/black jacket, grey hooded top, blue jeans and white trainers.

The second suspect is described as a black man, in his early 20s, wearing a navy hooded coat, jeans and trainers. He carried a plastic bag containing the gun.

Acting Det Ch Insp Andy Perrott, Homicide and Serious Crime Command, said: “I believe there are people in the community who know who is responsible for this murder and hope the offer of a significant reward will persuade these individuals to come forward and help police provide some justice for Mr Duzgun’s family.”

Anyone with information should call police on 020 8785 8244 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
