Detectives investigating the death of a man in West Kensington have named the victim of the shooting as they continue to appeal for information

While formal identification has not yet taken place, officers are confident he is 21-year-old Janayo Lucima from West Kensington. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers.

An investigation was launched after police were called at 22:17hrs on Monday, 1 April to reports of a disturbance at a residential address on Comeragh Road, W14.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended. At the scene a 21-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound.

The man, now believed to be Janayo, was treated by medics at the scene, but despite their efforts he sadly died at the scene at 22:54hrs.

A post-mortem examination is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, 3 April.

At this early stage there have been no arrests.

A crime scene remains in place but the roads have now reopened to traffic.

Detective Chief Inspector Brian Howie, who is leading the investigation, said: “This horrific incident took place at a busy time of the evening when many people in the area would have been going out, coming home from work or an evening out, or may have been driving through Comeragh Road, Barton Road or Palliser Road. I am keen to hear from these people.

“Detectives remain in the area and I urge anyone with information to speak to officers directly or contact us online or via 101. If you can help please reach out to us.

“Were you in the area between 9.40pm and 10.30pm? Did you see a group of males on foot or on the bikes? Did you hear any shouting or witness any type of altercation or something that appeared suspicious? Do you have dashcam footage of anything that could assist our investigation?

“If you can help our investigation or have concerns please do approach officers as they patrol the area. Alternatively, please contact your neighbourhood policing team.”

The investigation continues and information can be shared directly with the investigation team here:

Anyone who witnessed this incident or has information, but has not yet spoken with police, should call 101 or post on X @MetCC quoting CAD 6709/01Apr.
