Police have also taken the unusual step of naming Jamie Marsh-Smith, 22, and issuing his photograph and CCTV footage of him in a bid to trace his whereabouts.

Zafer Eren, who was 34 and the father of a month-old baby, was shot dead in the street outside his home in High Street, Southgate, on Thursday, April 18 this year.

He was killed around 7.20pm at night and witnesses described seeing a masked gunman flee the scene in a burgundy Peugeot 308.

Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, leading the investigation from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “Today we need the public to help us trace Jamie Marsh-Smith.

“We are keen to speak to him in connection with the murder of Zafer Eren.

“We know that allegiances shift over time and now months on from Zafer’s murder, people may have the confidence to talk to us.

“A £30,000 reward is available for information that helps us arrest and convict those responsible for Zafer’s death.”

Police said Jamie Marsh-Smith has been known to have links to Tottenham, Hackney, Camden and Kilburn, and anyone with information of his whereabouts is asked to contact the incident room on 020 7321 7228, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Service said detectives are also exploring links to two further shootings as part of this investigation.

He said: “These were on April 22, 2013 in Tottenham, where the victim managed to escape from the scene, and on December 30, 2012 in Lower Edmonton.

“At this stage we are not releasing any further information about these shootings for operational reasons.”

Police also confirmed a 20-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Zafer Eren and is in custody to stand trial on November 11 at the Old Bailey.
