Police investigating the murder of 24-year-old Nathan Williams in New Cross exactly a year ago  are offering a £20,000 reward for information on his killer.

Williams, from Kennington, was shot in Ludwick Mews, SE14, in the early hours of 28 July 2009.

He was discovered by police lying in a pool of blood in a Volkswagen Golf. He had been shot several times, sustaining serious injuries. He died later in hospital.

It is believed that four males may have been involved in the killing, but so far only one person has been arrested in connection with the case and was subsequently released with no charges.

Now, officers from Operation Trident, which tackles black-on-black gun crime, are backing their appeal for information about Williams’ murder with a substantial financial reward.

£20,000 is offered in return for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of those responsible.

Detective Chief Inspector Gordon Allison said: “It’s now a year on from Nathan’s murder and we believe that the local community hold the answers as to who did this.”

“This was a brutal execution of a young man and those who did this should not be tolerated by the community – if you have information I would urge you to come forward and work with police, who can protect your identity.”

“Nathan’s family deserve justice for their loss and the community deserve to live without fear of those who commit these terrible crimes.”

If you have any information, you can call the Incident Room on 020 8247 4554. Alternatively, for anonymity, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
