TWO YEARS on from the shooting death of 20-year-old Rowan Thomas-Williams in northwest London, police have renewed their appeal for information.

Mr Thomas-Williams suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the chest at an address in Harlesden on December 6, 2013.

He managed to make his way to a nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead at 9.40am the following morning.

Police believe the victim was involved in an altercation at an address in Mulberry Court, where a house party is believed to have been underway, during which he was shot, the BBC reported.

Detectives said they have faced a wall of silence over the killing, which is being treated as murder.

“Two years on from the murder of Rowan Thomas-Williams in Brent detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command will be appealing for information in the hope that person or people responsible will finally be caught,” the Met said.
Three men and a woman were arrested on suspicion of murder and later released on bail.

At the time of his death, Mr Thomas-Williams’ mother, Ruth, said she was “still in shock and always will be”.

She added: “The loss of my son is heart wrenching, words can not explain just how bad I feel.
“Rowan was my first born, we had that special bond, and he is and always will be my baby boy.”
