Detectives investigating the murder of a teenager are continuing their enquiries on the first anniversary of his death.
Nyle Corrigan, 19 years, died from a single gunshot wound to the back after being shot in Boode Croft in Stockbridge Village at around 6.30pm on Thursday 12 November 2020.
Two weeks ago (Tuesday 26 October) officers arrested two people in connection with the murder.
A 46-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and have since been released under investigation. To date 10 people have been arrested in connection with his death but nobody has been charged.
Detective Chief Inspector Cath Cummings, who is leading the murder investigation, said: “One year has now passed since the fatal shooting of Nyle and our thoughts are with his family during this heart-breaking milestone.
“The 10 arrests made so far by our officers show how committed we are to pursuing all lines of enquiry to bring those responsible to justice.
“After Nyle was shot a crowd of people quickly gathered around him at the scene as patrols arrived. It is suspected that they may have been key witnesses after the incident.
“Therefore we are continuing to appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time who hasn’t already come forward to speak to us as they may have information which could be vital to solving Nyle’s murder.
“Nyle’s death is still raw for his family and friends who are dealing with his loss just one year on. I can reassure them that we will continue to take action until those responsible are put before the courts."
