#AceDailyNews says here’s an UPDATE: Victim of fatal shooting in Balham named as investigation continues and public & witnesses help sought by detectives to bring the attackers to justice…

Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin is leading the investigation. She said: “Matthias was leaving his home address when he was set upon without warning by at two suspects wearing facemasks who fired at him and and then fled the scene in a silver hatchback vehicle – possibly a Peugeot, or a VW Golf – in the direction of Balham town centre: I implore anyone who saw a suspicious vehicle in the area around of the time of the incident to contact us. Matthias was horrifically and brutally shot at his front door and left to die in the doorway. His friends and members of the public came to his aid in a bid to save his life, but his injuries were too great: The people responsible for this needless loss of life are violent criminals and must be apprehended. If you have dash cam footage, doorbell footage, or saw anything that you think might assist police, you must tell us; the slightest piece of information could prove crucial in helping us catch two dangerous offenders who have access to a firearm.

“Matthias family are at the beginning of an incredible ordeal. Think of their grieving, think of their suffering, and please do the right thing and tell police what you know. Crimestoppers is a 100% anonymous method if you do not want to speak to police directly. What matters most is that you make the call.”

Police were called at approximately 22:50hrs on Thursday, 17 June to reports of a man suffering gunshot injuries in Bedford Hill, SW12.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and Matthias was taken to hospital for treatment; despite the best efforts of the emergency services he was pronounced dead at 23:36hrs.

Enquiries into the circumstances remain ongoing and there have been no arrests.
