Renewed appeal regarding fatal shooting in Leyton

Detectives investigating a fatal shooting in Leyton are re-issuing images of people they wish to identify and speak with.

The images were initially circulated in September 2019 by detectives investigating the death of Grineo Daka, 27, from Stratford, who was fatally shot in Lea Bridge Road, E10 in the early hours of Sunday, July 7, 2019.

A post-mortem examination at Walthamstow mortuary on Tuesday, July 9, gave the cause of death as a single gunshot.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Wrigley, who leads the investigation, said: “While this investigation has made significant progress and one person is awaiting trial, I am still keen to speak to the three people shown in these images.

“If you are one of the people in these images, or if you recognise them, please come forward and speak to my team.

“We understand that Grineo and two other men had gone to the snooker club. The victim was then involved in an altercation with another group and a number of shots were fired.

“A man has lost his life, while two others were injured. We need the community to support us and help bring those responsible to justice.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in or near the Phoenix Club to pick up the phone and call police now. Anyone with information about this brutal crime can contact the incident room, where detectives are ready to support you and take your call.”

Anyone with information can contact detectives at the incident room on 020 8345 3715 or via 101. You can also contact police via Twitter at @MetCC, please quote Cad 1438/07Jul.
