Police have released the image of a Jaguar car they want information about in connection with the murder of a man in South Kilburn.
Jeffrey Wegbe was gunned down outside his home in Hansel Road at 12.20am on August 12.
Despite the efforts of police and paramedics the 26-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives will be in and around Hansel Road this afternoon and evening (August 18) conducting house to house enquiries and a witness appeal.
Det Insp James Howarth, leading the investigation, said: “I am urgently appealing for information about the movements of this grey Jaguar XF Estate on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 August. Did you see it in the area or in the moments before or after Jeffrey was killed? If you did, or you have any other information about this car, my officers and I need to hear from you. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us, as you may hold a significant piece of information that could help our investigation and get justice for Jeffrey and his family.”
A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.
