Neighbours described hearing multiple gunshots followed by a woman screaming “desperately” for help.

A spokesperson for the Met Police said the killing which “saw a man losing his life in such a horrific way” had left his family “devastated”.

Lying in doorway
Neighbour Vittoria Amati, 60, said she heard between “eight to 10” gunshots fired.

“I then heard the screams of the wife. I came out and realised it was one of my neighbours.

“He was lying in front of his doorway in a pool of blood. He was still alive. We were really hoping he would make it.

“You have no idea how desperate she [his wife] sounded.”
