New CCTV footage shows car in Ealing police looking for after man, 20, gunned down in drive-by


New Met Police CCTV footage captures a car the force wants to locate after a man was shot dead. The white Range Rover was found burnt out on Ascott Avenue in Ealing around 25 minutes after being caught on camera at around 12.40am.

It comes after last Saturday (June 8) marked the fourth anniversary of Alexander Kareem’s murder, having been shot dead on Askew Road in Shepherds Bush, in a mistaken identity killing, according to The Met. The emergency services raced to Askew Road that night at around 12.40am, but the 20-year-old was pronounced dead 45 minutes later.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “Police were called at around 12.40am hours to reports of a man suffering gunshot injuries. Officers rushed to the scene, along with the London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance, where they found Alexander with catastrophic injuries. Sadly, he was pronounced dead at the scene around 45 minutes later.

“On the night of Alexander's murder, it is believed the assailants drove past him on Askew Road in a white Range Rover and shot him in what police believe to be a case of mistaken identity. The Range Rover was found burnt out just 25 minutes later three miles away on Ascott Avenue.

“The £20,000 reward is on offer from the independent charity Crimestoppers, for anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of Alexander's killers. Detectives are still keen to hear from anyone with any information or who may have been in the area at the time.”
