London Ambulance Service attended and the two injured men were taken to hospital - Joseph died there at approx. 23.10hrs.
The second victim, aged 22, is understood to be in a serious but stable condition.
Police are appealing for information on two suspects seen running from the scene.
The first man is black, and the second is light-skinned - possibly of Asian or Turkish appearance. They were seen making off on foot from Hindrey Road E5 after the shooting, heading towards the nearby Pembury Estate.
Detectives from Trident are leading the inquiry. An incident room has opened at Hendon under Detective Chief Inspector Kenny McDonald.
DCI McDonald said:
"Our early inquiries suggest that Joseph and those he was in the car with have no links to gangs. We continue to work to try and establish the motive for this murder.
"I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time of the shooting and may have seen the incident, or two males fleeing the scene, to contact officers."
