Saturdays gun shot victim in Clapton has been named as 25-year-old Moses Fadairo, of Bow, a father of twin baby boys born earlier this year and a four year old.

A post-mortem examination took place at Poplar Mortuary on Sunday, 27 September and gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the chest.

It is believed Fadairo was chased by a group of 3 men and then fired at at close range, before running into Mighty Meats Butchers shop for help. He died in a pool of his own blood outside the shop.

Fadairo who was out on bail on driving while disqualified and possession of class A drugs with intent to supply charges, was due to attend a hearing yesterday at Aylesbury Crown Court, which was adjourned to confirm his death.
