Police appeal for witnesses from Brent to come forward

A Neasden man has appeared in court in connection with the murder of a 21-year-old who was gunned down four months ago.

Rickel Adams, of Janson Close, appeared before Bristol Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Monday) accused of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life and two counts of attempted murder.

Adams was charged over the weekend by detectives from Avon and Somerset who are investigating the murder of Rico Gordon.

Mr Gordon from Notting Hill, was shot dead as he stood outside a pub in Bristol following a carnival in the city on July 3.

Last week, Shakah Anderson, formerly of Harlesden and now from Luton, was charged with Mr Gordon’s murder.

He also appeared in court yesterday for a preliminary hearing.

Both men were remanded in custody and Anderson will appear before Bristol Crown Court on February 6.

Mr Gordon’s killing was featured on BBC1’s Crimewatch programme last week.

Detectives investigating the killing believe potential witnesses could come from the Brent area as scores of people from the borough had travelled to Bristol for the annual carnival in the St Paul’s area.

Anyone with any information can contact the incident room on 0845 45 67000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
