Police are hunting for a man in connection with the fatal shooting of a woman in Oxfordshire. Billy Johnson, 20, is wanted on suspicion of the murder of Kerry Reeves.
The 26-year-old, who was shot in the head in Thornhill Walk, Abingdon on Tuesday (3 November) died in hospital on Thursday. Another man, aged 20 and from Ealing, has also been arrested on suspicion of murder Sky News reports. Detectives have yet to locate the gun used in the shooting.
Miss Reeves' mother, Nicola, issued a statement paying tribute to her daughter. "On Tuesday evening my beautiful, funny daughter was brutally taken from me, aged just 26," she said. "Holding her in my arms for the last time is something a mother should never have to go through. Trying to take in how she looked, kissing her, never wanting to let her go. Myself and Kerry's family are completely devastated not only by the loss of our beautiful young girl but the horrific way Kerry was taken from us."
Mr Johnson is white, 5ft 8ins, with very short brown hair and blue eyes. He has "mum" tattooed on his right arm and a tattoo on his right hand bearing the words "life is precious". He is believed to have links to London, Corby in Northamptonshire, and Oxfordshire.
Officers are warning the public not to approach Mr Johnson, who they say may be armed. Detective Chief Inspector Mike Lynch, of Thames Valley Police, said: "Our investigation appears to indicate that this was not a random attack and the offenders knew Kerry. We are still actively searching for a further suspect."
