Neasden man on gun rap following Bristol murder remanded in custody
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.
