Detectives investigating Rico Gordon murder in new CCTV appeal

Officers would like to speak to driver of white van captured in the area

Detectives investigating the murder of man during a suspected gun fight between warring gangs have released new images which show vehicles and people in and around the scene.

Rico 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 year.Investigating officers from Avon and Somerset Police believe the people in a white Vauxhall Combo van which is believed to have been parked near to the scene at the time of the shooting and then drove away soon afterwards could hold vital information.

Detectives are working closely with Operation Trident, the Met’s specialist team that investigates gun crime in London, to solve tha case.

Detective Superintendent Sue Scott said: “Rico Gordon lost his life needlessly and we are committed to bringing those responsible for his death to justice.

“We know the area was very busy at the time due to parties taking place following the carnival. We believe there are still a number of witnesses or people with valuable information we have not yet spoken to.”

Anyone with any information on Rico’s murder can contact the incident room on 0845 45 67000 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
