A third man was being questioned today in connection with the murder of a teenage girl shot in the neck at a takeaway restaurant, Scotland Yard said.

Agnes Sina-Inakoju, 16, was standing with a group of friends inside the fast food outlet in east London last Wednesday evening when a shot was fired through the window.

Detectives investigating the attack yesterday arrested a 21-year-old who is being held at a central London police station.

Another 21-year-old, Leon Dunkley, from east London, appeared at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on Tuesday charged with the murder. He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey.

A 16-year-old boy arrested on Saturday was bailed until June.

Police were called to the Hoxton Chicken and Pizza fast food outlet in Hoxton Street, Hackney, shortly after 7pm.

The victim was taken by ambulance to an east London hospital but died on Friday morning.

A post-mortem examination carried out at Poplar mortuary gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound.
