The Met Police are appealing to members of the public a week on from the murder of Redwan El-Ghaidouni who was shot and killed outside his home in Uxbridge.
The father-of-three was killed while inside his parked car on the driveway of his home in Vine Lane at around seven in the evening last Tuesday (3rd).
CCTV footage of a suspect has been released by police.
The investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, of the Homicide and Major Crime Command is appealing to the public for any information regarding the man in the CCTV footage.
We would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a man loitering in the Vine Lane or St Andrews Road area before the murder or saw our suspect making off on foot afterwards.
The suspect is thought to have made off on foot through an alleyway that leads to Saunders Road.
DCI McHugh is also appealing to anyone who may have seen any unfamiliar vehicles in the area in the days around the murder.
We would also be interested to hear from anyone who may have seen someone suspicious or any unfamiliar vehicles on the estate in the days or weeks leading up to the murder.
The police are also searching for any accomplices.
It seems unlikely the suspect was acting entirely alone – perhaps you saw more than one person hanging around the area. The suspect was wearing a fairly distinctive dark hooded top with a large motif on the front – perhaps you noticed this item of clothing?
The suspect was caught on CCTV by a camera at Saunders Road, before running in the direction of Dowding Road.
The man was thought to be wearing a hooded top, dark gloves and dark shoes or trainers.
It’s thought the murder was well planned, and may be linked to Mr. El-Ghaidouni’s past offences. DCI McHugh said:
He was linked to criminality and had recently served a sentence for drug importation. Did someone have a grievance against him related to drugs or other criminality?
The victim’s partner, Samantha Taitt, is appealing alongside police for any information.
In a statement today she said:
I was expecting my beloved Redwan to return home from work to look after our three children. As he arrived home he was executed and he never stood a chance. Our three young children will now grow up without their loving father. His mother, father and siblings are left without a son and brother.
We are left numb with pain and he will be greatly missed.
