Police have named the victims of a fatal shooting in Ilford.

Saydi Abu Sheikh, 23, and Zakariya Jeilani Mohammed, 32, were shot dead inside a house in Henley Road at around 12.15am on Tuesday, 25 October.

A third man, 30, was taken to hospital with gunshot wounds. He remains there in a life-threatening condition.

“This was an unspeakable act of extreme violence that has devastated two families and sent shock waves throughout the community,” said Detective Chief Inspector Chris Wood.

“My team is working around the clock to identify those responsible and I would like to express my thanks to the people who have already provided information – they can be sure that we will act on everything they have provided.

“We still want to hear from anyone who was inside or near the house in Henley Road when the attack took place.

“The suspects responsible for this horrific act are violent criminals and it is important that they are not protected by a wall of silence -help us take them off your streets by telling us who they are.

“It doesn’t matter if you speak to us directly or anonymously via Crimestoppers – but please do get in touch.”

Police say they are following a number of lines of inquiry but no arrests have been made so far.

A car linked to the shooting was recovered nearby in Ronnie Lane.

The families of all three victims are being supported by specialist officers.

Anyone with information that can help police with their investigation is asked to call 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 99/25Oct.

To remain 100% anonymous contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
