Police are appealing for information relating to the murder of Alexander Kareem

A £20,000 reward is available on the fourth anniversary of Alexander Kareeem's murder.  Alexander was only 20-years-old when he was fatally shot on Askew Road in Shepherds Bush, in the early hours of Monday 8th June 2020.  Alexander had gone into an off-licence to buy sweets and was on his way to a friend's house when he was shot and left for dead.


Police were called at around 00:40 hours to reports of a man suffering gunshot injuries.  Officers rushed to the scene, along with the London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance, where they found Alexander with catastrophic injuries.  Sadly, he was pronounced dead at the scene around 45 minutes later.


On the night of Alexander's murder, it is believed the assailants drove past him on Askew Road in a white Range Rover and shot him in what police believe to be a case of mistaken identity.  The Range Rover was found burnt out just 25 minutes later three miles away on Ascott Avenue.


The £20,000 reward is on offer from the independent charity Crimestoppers, for anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of Alexander's killers.  Detectives are still keen to hear from anyone with any information or who may have been in the area at the time.
