A murder investigation has been launched in Hounslow after a man died in hospital after he was found with a head injury.

Police were called shortly before 00:40hrs on Wednesday, 18 August by London Ambulance Service to a west London hospital, after a 61-year-old man, named as Mehmood Shamshi, was found with a life-threatening head injury in Staines Road, Hounslow.

He had been treated at the scene by paramedics from London Ambulance Service before being taken to hospital in a critical condition. He died in the early hours of Saturday, 21 August.

An investigation, led by homicide detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command is currently ongoing into the circumstances of his death.

Detectives believe Mehmood was the victim of an assault on Staines Road, near the junction of Cromwell Road, at about 10.30pm on Tuesday, 17 August.
