The Metropolitan police has renewed its appeal for witnesses after a 28-year-old man was fatally shot in an incident in south-east London. Keeno Harris died two days after an incident at the Function Rooms nightclub in Thornton Heath.
Harris is thought to have been shot in the early hours of 27 November and admitted himself to a hospital in south-east London with a gunshot wound. Police were later called in by the hospital, having already attended an incident at the club at around 5:00am the same day.
In a statement issued by the Met, Detective Chief Inspector Tony Lynes, who is leading the investigation, said: "We need to hear from people who were present at the Brigstock Parade Function Room during the early hours of Sunday 27 November, and particularly anyone who may have either seen men present in possession of firearms at the venue or saw the altercation which resulted in Keeno Harris being shot around 5am.
"The venue was full of people at the time and the incident happened in a public area in view of those there. I can reassure potential witnesses or those with information about this case that they will be dealt with sensitively and confidentially and so I urge them to make contact."
Harris, who lived in Croydon, was the father of a young daughter, the Met said. Two men have been charged in connection with the crime which is one of several shooting fatalities in the capital in the last few weeks.
On 5 December, a 24-year-old died after he was shot in the head in a suspected ambush in Fulham. Three days later a 21-year-old man, named locally as Yasir, was shot and killed at an incident in Kilburn at 17:20pm in the afternoon.
