Appeal for Witnesses
The police have appealed for anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious or any passing drivers with relevant dash cam footage to come forward.
The investigation is ongoing, and the police have asked anyone with information to contact them on 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting the reference CAD616/4Apr.

The news of another fatal shooting in London is disturbing.
While the circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear, it highlights the increasing concern about gun violence in the UK.
Gun violence has been a longstanding issue in the US, but it is relatively rare in the UK.
However, there has been a worrying increase in the number of gun-related incidents in the country in recent years.
The police’s appeal for witnesses is essential to help them piece together what happened and bring the perpetrators to justice.
It is also a reminder that communities need to come together to tackle the root causes of gun violence, such as poverty, inequality, and access to firearms.
