Courtney lad murder hunt: Three arrested
MURDER detectives probing the fatal shooting of gangster Dave Courtney’s stepson have arrested three suspects.
Genson Courtney, 23, was shot in the head as he sat in a black Volkswagen Golf in Greenwich, south east London, in July.
He was the stepson of Courtney, the selfstyled gangster who has written books about his ‘hardman’ lifestyle.
Three men – aged 27, 28 and 34 – were arrested at addresses in south and east London on suspicion of murder and have been taken into custody at a central London police station.
DCI Mark Gower said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious to contact the police.
“I would like to reassure anyone concerned about contacting the police that we have great expertise in protecting witnesses.”
