A murder investigation is underway after the death of a man who was left a quaraplegic following an attack in Harlesden.
Yassin Omar Mohamed died on May 14 from bronchial pneumonia with a causal link to spinal injuries he sustained after he was assaulted three years ago.
The 21-year-old suffered a broken top vertebrae leaving him paralysed from the neck downwards after he was smashed over the head with a bottle in Greenhill Road, on April 1, 2009.
Mr Mohamed had become embroiled in an argument with a man at a party in Wembley hours before he was attacked while walking home with his friend.
Detectives from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command are investigating his death under Detective Inspector Andy Manning.
On April 2010, a 33-year-old man was acquitted of grievous bodily harm at Harrow Crown Court in connection with the attack.
