Man bailed over prison shooting

Scene of shooting outside Wandsworth Prison
Police are keeping an open mind as to the motive for the attack

A fourth man arrested in connection with a fatal shooting outside a south-west London jail has been bailed.

Darcy Bruce, 20, from Fulham, west London, was shot dead outside Wandsworth Prison on Friday.

It is thought he had been visiting an inmate when he was attacked outside the prison gates.

A 27-year-old man arrested on Sunday on suspicion of being involved in the murder has been bailed. Three others held on Friday have also been bailed.

Several gunshot wounds

The three men, aged 19, 22 and 26, arrested on suspicion of murder were released on police bail on Saturday evening.

Mr Bruce, who died at the scene, suffered several gunshot wounds to his body.

Two men wearing crash helmets were seen running away from the scene of the attack towards Alma Terrace after a series of gunshots were heard.

Police said they were keeping an open mind as to the motive.
