Police investigating the St. Valentine’s Day killing of a North-West London man have released CCTV images of a suspect they wish to identify and a car they want to trace.
Omer Jama Abdi, 35, (pic.top) suffered fatal head injuries in the early hours of February 14 in St. John’s Road, Wembley during a domestic incident.
Two men of Somali appearance were involved and one of them (pic.middle) - who is believed to be in his thirties – is still wanted.
Police are also keen to trace a silver three-door Vauxhall Corsa, which was captured on CCTV leaving nearby Elm Road at 2.20am.
Detective Inspector Mark Lawson of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command said: “We are urging anyone who recognises the silver Corsa and man captured on CCTV to come forward and speak to us.
“This was a vicious attack on a man who lost his life in a relatively quiet residential road in Wembley, over a what we believe is a domestic dispute.
“We believe that the male suspect frequents the Wembley area and I am particularly keen to hear from anyone within the Somali community who can help us identify him.
“All calls will be treated with the utmost confidence, and we have a dedicated number for any Somali speaking witnesses who wish to speak to us.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8358 0200; for the dedicated Somali speaking line dial 020 8358 1241; or if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
A 39-year-old-man was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday February 14 at an address in Wembley on suspicion of murder.
He has been bailed to return on a date in early April pending further enquiries.
