Detectives are appealing for information on the sixth anniversary of the murder of Davion Watt.

The 26-year-old was shot dead in Brixton in 2008. No murder weapon has ever been recovered.

No one has been prosecuted for the crime and police are renewing a plea for witnesses to come forward.

"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."

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