Seven bailed over Paddington murder of Queen’s Park man
Innocent electrician was gunned down as he left takeaway shop
Seven men questioned over the murder of an innocent electrician outside a takeaway shop have been bailed for a second time.
Daniel Smith was gunned down as he left the KFC in Harrow Road, Paddington, on May 22 last year.
The 22-year-old from the Mozart Estate, Queen’s Park, was killed in a hail of bullets as he was about to get into his car at 12.15am.
Detectives from Operation Trident, the Met’s specialist team that investigates gun crime in London, believe Mr Smith was an innocent victim in a case of mistaken identity.
