Elliot, 20, was stabbed inside his home in Hudson Close on Tuesday, 19 April.
Medics worked hard to save his life, but despite their efforts, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers investigating the killing arrested a 20-year-old man on suspicion of murder yesterday. He remains in their custody.
Detective Chief Inspector Kelly Allen said: “Our investigation is making good progress and we have carried out door to door enquiries and examined hours of CCTV footage.
“I am grateful to those people who have already come forward to speak with us and urge anyone with information who hasn’t yet been in touch to call us without delay.
“Even the smallest piece of information could corroborate something we have already been told, or might be the missing part of the timeline of events that we are building.
“It is our mission to remove dangerous weapons, and the dangerous people who use them, from London’s streets. Please help us make your city safer by telling us what you know.”
Anyone who has information or footage should call the Metropolitan Police’s incident room on 0208 3451 570 or the non-emergency number 101, quoting 4484/19APR.
