A TRAINEE driving instructor stands accused of shooting a father-of-two at point blank range in a café in the middle of the afternoon.
Joseph John Olliffe, 35, from Bromley, died instantly after he was shot twice in the head in D A Sandwich Café in Court Road, Mottingham at 3.45pm last Wednesday (4).
Gary Oxley, 48, from south-east London, was arrested at the scene and appeared at Greenwich Magistrates Court last Saturday (7) charged with his murder.
He has been remanded in custody and will next appear at the Old Bailey on June 12.
Mr Olliffe is believed to have had a long-term partner with whom he had a three-year-old son and a four-year-old daughter.
Friends and family of Mr Olliffe have been leaving flowers and tributes at the scene of his death. One from his nieces Stacey and Lucy read: "You will always be in our thoughts and prayers. God bless Petra and the kids."
Another for 'Uncle Joe' read: "I remember the last time I saw you I knew it was you straight away as you looked so much like grandad. I only wish we got the chance to be a proper family. You have always been in our hearts and always will. Give grandad a big kiss and hug from me and the kids and auntie Joyce and one day we will all be together again soon in peace."
