Appeal for witnesses and information after a murder in West Norwood 08 Aug 16:24

Detectives continue to appeal for witnesses and information after a murder in West Norwood.

Officers were called to Waylett Place, at the junction with Norwood Road SE27, shortly before 04.15hrs on Saturday 6 August re. a man shot.

The victim was taken by ambulance to Kings College Hospital where he died at 05.33hrs.

He was Daniel Famakinwa, 20 years of Halley Road, Manor Park E12. He was a single man.

A post mortem gave cause of death as a gunshot wound. 

An inquest will open and adjourn in due course.

An incident room has opened at Lewisham under DCI Caroline Goode (HSCC)

DCI Goode said: "We now know Daniel had been out dancing that night with a group of friends and afterwards they were waiting for a bus at the bus stop at Waylett Place and Norwood Road. There was an altercation between Daniel's group and another group of black men who were also waiting at the bus stop which has resulted in Daniel being killed.

"I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time, and who may have seen or heard anything suspicious, to come forward as you may hold significant information.

"We are specifically appealing for a white woman in a checked shirt who was also at the bus stop, and who had no connection to either group, to come forward. She understandably made off at the time but we need her to contact police - she may have vital information.

"I believe there were also a number of black women at the bus stop who fled after the incident, and again we need them to come forward and make themselves known."

Anyone who can assist should call the incident room on 020 8721 4868; if you wish to remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
