Detectives investigating a fatal shooting of a 15 year old Urnswick School student in Hackney Wick yesterday, say she has been formally identified as Shereka Fab-Ann Marsh.

A post-mortem examination has also taken place today, 23 March, at Poplar Mortuary and gave cause of death as a gunshot wound to the neck.

Police were called shortly before 4:00 PM on Saturday, 22 March, to a girl shot inside a house in Eastway, E9. The house was not Shereka’s address.

Paramedics and the London Air Ambulance were unable to save her and she was pronounced dead at the scene. A gun was found at the house in Eastway. Enquiries continue to establish the full circumstances of the incident.

An incident room is open at Barking. Anyone with information that may assist the inquiry should call detectives on 020 8345 3775. To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Two 16-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy were arrested near to the scene on suspicion of murder. They were taken to an east London police station, where they remain in custody.
