Breaking News – Man shot in head is London’s fifth murder victim in four days
A 30-year-old man has become London’s fifth murder victim in just four days after he was shot in the head at 10:15pm on Sunday, November 1. Metropolitan Police were called to an address on the Balfour Road in Ilford, East London. Emergency services treated the man but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
This will begin the fifth murder investigation in London since Thursday, following deaths in Wandsworth, Greenwich, Paddington and Chessington.
A Met Police spokesman said on Monday, November 1: “At this early stage, there have been no arrests and enquiries into the circumstances continue.”
The death of a 19-year-old in Paddington on Saturday marked the 100th teenager to be murdered since Sadiq Khan was elected Mayor of London in 2016.
A total of 38 of the killings were in south London, while 62 were north of the Thames, while the two youngest victims were just 14-years-old.
