Rowan Thomas-Williams, 20, died after he was blasted in the chest at an address in Mulberry Court just before 2am.

Detectives investigating the murder were called to nearby Elgar Avenue in response to reports of gunshots but found no one there.

However Mr Thomas-Williams’ friends had already taken him to a hospital in north west London where medics called the police.

He died several hours later at 9.40am.

A post mortem examination at Northwick Park hospital yesterday gave his cause of death as gunshot wound to the chest.

Family and friends of Mr Thomas-William’s, who was known as Trigger, have paid tribute to him on social networking sites.
