The deceased screamed ‘help me’ as he lay on the ground before a passer-by attempted to perform CPR.
According to reports, a white Range Rover was seen in the area before the shooting.
This White Range Rover was later found burnt out, however, it is being traced by police as ‘a key line of inquiry’
An Eye Witness gave an account saying:
“I heard shots and somebody calling help me, help me. I called the police and watched the nearby scene from a window. I saw a man lay in the street, sort of in the gutter in front of the bus stop, and several cars had stopped and the people were trying to help and one of them was trying to give CPR. I was laying in bed at about 12:30 am when I heard two or three gunshots before Mr Alexander Kareem was found.”
Paramedics who arrived to treat the victim pronounced him dead shortly after.
Another 69-year-old resident in Shepherds Bush, who did not want to be named, claimed she witnessed three gunshots pumped into Alexander Kareem, a bubbling Nigerian born British teenager, that sniffed life out of him on the streets of London.
The death of 20-year-old Alexander in London has left his controversial Met police officer sister who appeared on Nigerian Big Brother depressed.
Kaffy recently tweeted, “The mornings are usually hard when I remember he isn’t here anymore.”
Alexander was shot near his family home in Shepherd’s Bush, West London, on Monday, June 8.
Detectives have said they would also like to hear from anyone who may have captured either the shooting or the Range Rover on dashcam.
No arrests have been made yet. The probe of the murder of Alexander Kareem is the 50th in the capital this year.
When asked about the victim’s link to Kaffy Kareem, the Met said, “We are not prepared to discuss,”
Currently, the Kareem family are in distraught.
“They are all good people. His sister Khafi spreads positivity through her YouTube account. She wakes up and prays for people at 7:30 every morning.
“Alex’s brother is trying to get back from Australia to grieve with the rest of his family, his mum is completely devastated.”
People paid respects at the site of the shooting by leaving bouquets, a bottle of brandy and a crucifix.
