An 18-year-old man has been remanded in custody after being charged with murder over a fatal shooting at a strip of shops in Melbourne’s north.

Abdurhman Jemal, 33, from Broadmeadows was found wounded and lying next to a car on Justin Ave at Glenroy about 4.30am on March 29.

He died at the scene.

At the time, Victoria Police alleged the attack was “very targeted”, and said the victim was known to officers and had a criminal record.

Homicide squad detectives on Friday arrested an 18-year-old Campbellfield man in Broadmeadows and charged him with murder over the incident.

The teenager appeared at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Friday and was remanded in custody to reappear on August 26.

Police said a 48-year-old Thornhill Park man was arrested in Thornhill Park on Thursday.

Investigators interviewed the man and he was subsequently charged with accessory to murder.

He was bailed to appear in Melbourne Magistrates Court on June 20.

Police said the 18-year-old Campbellfield man was previously arrested and interviewed on April 19.

The 48-year-old Thornhill Park man was arrested and interviewed by investigators on May 7.

At the time, both were released pending further inquiries.

Luke Picking from Newport in Melbourne’s southwest has also been charged with murder over the fatal shooting and possessing a firearm as a prohibited person.

Picking has been remanded in custody to return to court on August 26.
