A reward of £10,000 offered for information on shooting of 20-year-old in Shepherd’s Bush

Detectives investigating the murder of Alexander Kareem in Shepherd’s Bush have made a renewed appeal for information as Crimestoppers announce a £10,000 reward.

They have offered the amount for any information that they receive anonymously that leads to the arrest of the person or people responsible for the murder of Alexander Kareem.

Police continue to investigate the murder of Alexander, 20, who was found with fatal gunshot wounds at 12.49am on Monday, 08 June, Askew Road, Shepherd’s Bush. Key lines of enquiry continue to centre on a vehicle, a white Range Rover, which was found burned out just 25 minutes after police were called to the scene, on nearby Ascott Avenue.

DCI Wayne Jolley, said: “We continue to work round the clock to find answers for Alexander’s friends and family. We are appealing to those who have information to call and say what you know. There are people out there who know who was in the white Range Rover that night. You are protecting someone who has committed a terrible crime and needs to be brought to justice. Please think of Alex’s family and friends who deserve to know what happened to him.

“We are hoping this significant reward, put up by Crimestoppers, will encourage people to come forward. It is 100% anonymous.

“There continues to be additional patrols in the area and we want to reassure the public that we will do all we can to bring those responsible to justice.”

Alexa Loukas, London Regional Manager at the charity Crimestoppers, said: “Our thoughts are very much with the family and friends of Alexander after this tragic murder. He had a great future ahead of him and his life has been senselessly cut short. If you know who was responsible or have any information, no matter how small, please speak up and tell Crimestoppers. This is your opportunity to do the right thing. We are offering this reward because his family deserve to see justice for Alexander.”
