The killing of Mr Boudhane, an Algerian national who had been living in the UK for about three years, sparked the Metropolitan Police’s first murder investigation of the year Sky News reports.
DCI John said: “The investigation is at a very early stage. It would appear at this time that an altercation has taken place between the victim, who was riding a motorcycle, and the driver of another vehicle in the vicinity of Lennox Road and Charteris Road, Finsbury Park: “This took place at approximately 6.50pm on Friday night in a busy thoroughfare where there are likely to have been many members of the public present: “The incident itself appears at this early stage to have been spontaneous and not connected to, or as a result of, anything other than a traffic altercation: “Specialist officers are working extremely hard to build a clear picture of what happened and I would encourage anyone who may have seen the incident or has information to come forward: “A forensic examination of the scene has been undertaken and I expect the road to reopen very soon.”
