He had just got out of his car at the Bencham Road end of the street and was walking along the street when he was shot outside 76 Frant Road.

He was taken to nearby Mayday Hospital where he later died from his injuries.

The black man was described as being in his mid-20s, with a white baseball cap, black jacket, dark trousers and white trainers with a red flash on them and carrying a green or white carrier bag.
