Two men arrested in connection with the shootings in Fishermead, Milton Keynes have been released on police bail until 28 June 2011.

Det Supt Rob Mason, leading the investigation said: "The investigation is moving at a fast pace and we are following a number of leads. As with any live investigation I am limited in what information I can give out to the public. What I can say is that we have a large team of officers dedicated to this investigation and they are busy conducting house to house enquiries, speaking to witnesses and viewing hours of CCTV footage.

I am convinced that we will find whoever was responsible for the deaths of these two young men."

DS Mason added "We now know that our victims visited the Xscape and left there via the Virgin exit at approximately 9.41pm. They then walked back to the estate and were last sighted in the vicinity of X-Trim barbers shop in Gurnards Avenue at about 9.50pm. We would be keen to hear from anyone who saw our victims in the last few hours leading up to their deaths and particularly as they walked back from the Xscape building.

The response from the public and the local Fishermead community has been excellent and I would like to thank anyone who has contacted us with information. This crime has left many people shocked and saddened and we will do all we can to catch the person or people responsible
."

The coroner has revealed the post-mortem examinations carried out on Friday on the two men who died following a shooting in Milton Keynes, and has identified the cause of death for both victims as gunshot wounds to the head.

Monhamed Abdi Farah, aged 19, who died at the scene, sustained a single gunshot wound to his head.

The second victim, Amin Ahmed Ismail, aged 18, who died at Milton Keynes General Hospital yesterday afternoon, sustained two gunshot wounds to the head.

Amin's family have issued a photograph of their son (pictured).

A 13 year-old boy, also arrested as part of the investigation, has been released on police bail until the middle of June.
