HEARTBROKEN parents of a young father shot and killed in front of 900 people have made a personal plea to Times readers.
Ivan and Jean Ross have suffered three long years of not knowing who pulled the trigger on their 22-year-old son Daniel as he stood on a dance floor in a nightclub or why.
Daniel Ross, from Kensal Green, was shot in the head and killed at around 3.45am on Sunday September 24, 2006, as he waited on the dance floor near the DJ booth of the Scala night club in King's Cross.
Despite almost 1,000 attending the 'Heartless Crew' event that night, very few people have come forward with evidence that could bring the killers to justice.
Mr and Mrs Ross said: "Dear reader, we would like to make a personal appeal for evidence following the death of our son Daniel Ross three years ago.
"Please come forward and tell your story. Even if you did not see the incident directly, you may still have useful information on the lead up to, or aftermath of the incident.
"The wound to Daniel's head was fatal, and he died later that day in hospital.
"So, please, we urge you to come forward. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, may be crucial to the case. We and the entire family would like to understand what happened on that day and why.
"You may have seen or heard something that is relevant. Your evidence could be the catalyst to the arrest and conviction of the coward who cut short the life of our dear son, a loving father of two young children."
Police are so keen to catch the killer that they are offering a reward of £20,000 for anyone giving evidence leading to an arrest and conviction.
Officers have also released CCTV images of people they want to speak to.
Anyone with any information - no matter how small - should call 020 8733 4704 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
