Detectives are still determined to prosecute anyone responsible for murdering Nathan Allen two years ago, and on the anniversary of the shooting in Ludwick Mews, they have made a renewed appeal for witnesses as well as publicising a reward of up to £20,000.
Trident Gang Crime Command detectives believe there are people in New Cross and elsewhere who may be witnesses and have information that could prosecute the young man’s killer or killers.
They suspect that potential witnesses may be too frightened to come forward.
The Trident team has extensive experience and resources to provide protection and the message they want to send out is that: “We can protect you if necessary.”
Allen, 21, was found in the garden of an address in Ludwick Mews suffering from a fatal gunshot wound to the chest after 9 p.m. on May 4, 2010.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Acting Detective Chief Inspector Brian Lucas says: “Enquiries are continuing to bring those responsible for Nathan’s murder to justice but we need anyone with information about his murder to come forward and speak to us.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to reassure anyone who may be frightened of coming forward that Trident has extensive experience and knowledge of protecting witnesses and a range of measures can be used to protect you if necessary.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 020 8247 4554 or, if you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
