Police appeal for witnesses after 6 years

Six years on from the murder of a man in Brixton - detectives are issuing a fresh appeal for witnesses and information.

On the anniversary of his death, December 19, detectives are returning to the scene of his murder to try and jog the memories of local residents people in the area to hopefully generate any new lines of enquiry that could lead to the arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible.

Davion was 26 at the time when he died and lived in Bargery Road in Brixton.

It is thought that the killers intended to rob the flat Davion was in and as he ran from it chased by the intruders. He was shot in the communal stairs of the building, collapsing outside on the pavement where he was found.

In 209 seven people were arrested and one man charged in conduction with this murder, but the case never made it to court due to lack of evidence.

The case now sits with the Trident Gang Crime Command's Legacy Team. Its officers are hoping that in the time that has passed since Davion's murder, witnesses or anyone with any information that haven't spoken to police, will now feel able to come forward.

Acting Detective Inspector Peter Hine, from the Trident Gang Crime Command's Legacy Team, said:

"Without anyone coming forward we fear that Davion's family may never get the justice they so desperately want. With our anniversary appeal, we hope that the intervening years since Davion's murder have seen the allegiances change of those that may have kept silent. And that those people can now re-examine their consciences and consider doing the right thing and help us prosecute those responsible, bringing closure to the case for Davion's family."

Any witnesses or anyone with any information can call  020 8785 8267 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
