Murder detectives investigating murder of Khadar Hussein, 19, from Beckenham, who was shot dead in Penge last month have released the image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the incident.

The Met is also offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person responsible for the killing.

Mr Hussein was found shot in Kenilworth Road just before 8pm on May 8, and died the following day at King’s College Hospital in Denmark Hill.

A post-mortem examination revealed the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the head.

Police are trying to trace 19-year-old Trai Williamson, who was last seen on the day of the shooting, and who is known to frequent the nearby areas.

Williamson is black, about 5ft 9ins, of slim build with short hair and a London accent, police said.

Det Ch Insp Russell Taylor said: “We are taking the unusual step of publicising Trai Williamson’s name and image as it is critical he is found as soon as possible.

“The likelihood that he is being sheltered by someone in the hope that he remains out of sight is one line of inquiry that we are pursuing.

“I would appeal to anyone who may have accommodated Williamson or his helping him at present, to look to their conscience and do the right thing and inform the police of his whereabouts.”

Contact the incident room in the strictest confidence, opened under Det Ch Insp Taylor’s name, on 020 8721 4868.
