OP PLAZA Appeal for information

Police are appealing for information in relation to the murder of 16yr old Amaan Shakoor who was fatally shot on 2nd April 2018 outside the Walthamstow Leisure Centre.

Details of Incident

The family of a 16-year old shot dead in an attack in Walthamstow five years ago have put up a £50,000 reward in the hope it will catch those responsible as Police urge those with information to break the wall of silence.


Amaan Shakoor was shot in the head at close range outside Walthamstow Leisure Centre, Markhouse Road, E17 in the early evening of 2nd April 2018.


It is believed a white Hyundai vehicle was involved in this incident and was later found burnt out in Durban Road, E17


Detective Chief Inspector Kelly Allen, who leads the investigation said "We know that there are people who must have information about what happened. Amaan's family have been left with unanswered questions and it is frustrating that no one is prepared to provide them with the details they so desperately need to hear".
