Armed police officers had found Mr Difloriano hours after another man, 36-year-old Aleksandar Stevanovic, died from a gunshot wound to his chest at Henry Street, Lewisham.

Mr Difloriano was in a nearby home when he was discovered with a gunshot wound to the head.

The two men were known to each other, police said.
