12 years after Bill Cox was shot dead in his home, police investigating the murder have made two arrests.

Earlier today (June 25) two men aged 26 and 31 were arrested on suspicion of murder.

They were taken into custody at a south London police station where they remain.

William Thomas Cox (known as Billy) was just 15-years-old when he was fatally shot in his bedroom at his Clapham home in Fenwick Place on February 14, 2007.

Arrests were made during the original investigation but to date no charges have ever been brought in relation to the murder.

A Met spokesman said: "As with all serious cases, unsolved murder investigations are never closed and are subject to periodic public appeals and reviews.

"The arrests were made following developments within the investigation.

"Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command continue to investigate."

Earlier this year police released CCTV footage when they urged anyone with information to come forward.

Detectives have also previously offered a £20,000 reward for information that could help identify, arrest and prosecution of the person or people responsible for Billy's death.

Anyone with any information relating to Billy’s murder should contact the investigation team on 020 8785 8286, Tweet @MetCC, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
