10 Views Comment Off

DETECTIVES INVESTIGATING the murder of a teenager who was stabbed in north London at the start of the year, are now offering a £20,000 reward for information.

Shaquan Sammy-Plummer, 17, died on 30 January 2015 after being fatally stabbed in the chest.

The substantial amount on offer is for information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for Shaquan’s death.

Officers will also be returning to the scene today (Aug 11) from noon to hand out appeal leaflets and speak to local residents and passers-by.

Seven months ago, police were called at around 9.35pm on Friday January 30 to reports of a young man collapsed on the pavement at Berkeley Gardens, Enfield.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found Shaquan, who lived in Islington, suffering from a stab wound.

He was taken to the Royal London Hospital in a critical condition where he died a short while later.

A post-mortem examination at Fulham Mortuary gave cause of death as a single stab wound to the chest.

According to investigating officer detective chief inspector Jamie Piscopo, from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, Shaquan was with two friends when he became involved in some kind of altercation that resulted in him being stabbed in the chest.

His friends tried to help him along with local residents but his injuries were too severe.

Piscopo said: “We still don’t know what the altercation was about and we hope the offer of £20,000 may encourage someone with information, no matter how small, to come forward.

“Were you in Berkeley Gardens that night? Did you see or hear anything suspicious? Have you heard talk since about what happened to Shaquan? Please contact us.”

Shaquan’s mother Jessica Plummer pleaded: “I would be very grateful if the people that witnessed my son’s murder could come forward to provide the police with information to bring those responsible to justice.”

So far, nine people have been arrested in connection with the investigation. Four have been released with no further action and five remain on bail until the end of September pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8345 3775 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
