Fatal shooting on the Pelican Estate - 30.12.10

Today I visited the scene of the shooting to speak to police and residents. I am strongly backing the police call for witnesses to come forward and give the police any information which could help with their investigation.

My deepest sympathies are with the parents and the family of the young man who has been killed. It is vital that those who committed this brutal crime should not get away with it. The overwhelming majority of young people in this area are decent, hardworking people who want to make the most of their lives and people are dismayed that once again a tragedy has cast a shadow over Peckham.
