Jerome Edwards was shot at a party at a flat in Southwell Road, Camberwell at 4.48am on Sunday 14 April 2013.

His cause of death was given as a gunshot wound to the head.

A man was tried for his murder but acquitted.

He was taken to hospital by ambulance but died several hours later that morning.

Another man was also shot in the ankle outside the flat in the street but was discharged from hospital the same day with minor injuries.

The man that was later charged was arrested two days later on 16 April 2013 and he was tried on 27 November 2013.

He had admitted being at the party, but said that it had been another man called, 'Warhead', that had shot Jerome Edwards.

It was said that there had been about 100 people at the party at a flat on the first floor and the police called for witnesses that had been in the flat, out in the street, or driving by at about 4am on the Sunday morning to come forward.

It was heard that the man had been identified as the gunman because of his '666' tattoos on his hands and the teardrop tattoos under his right eye. He had also been identified by his Mohican hairstyle that had a yellow patch.

He was said to have been the leader of the 'Sick Head' gang.

The prosecution said that the shooting might have been gang related but that Jerome Edwards had not been the target.

Jerome Edwards was from Catford.
