Detectives have today charged a third man with murder after a Romanian man was gunned down at a flat in west London in October.

Scotland Yard said Yousef Mohamud, 21, had been arrested and charged with the murder of Ionut Lazar.

The 28-year-old was the victim of a fatal shooting at a flat in Askew Road, Shepherd’s Bush.

Two men have previously been charged with the murder. Hanad Mohamed and Sufyan ElBakali are currently in custody and will appear at the Old Bailey.

All three men are also charged with one count of robbery on a second male.

Mohamud is due to appear in custody at Bromley Magistrates Court on April 8, while the Old Bailey trial is due to begin on July 3.
