8th April 2015
Detectives from the Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) are leading the investigation into the death of a man in Wembley on Tuesday, 7 April.
The man has been identified as Abdul-Hadi Arwani, 48-years-old, a British national born in Syria, who was living in west London.
Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 11:15hrs to reports of a man suffering from what are believed to be gun injuries to his chest.
On arrival Mr Arwani was found sitting in a dark coloured Volkswagon Passat parked in Greenhill, junction with The Paddocks.
SO15 are now carrying out the investigation because of their expertise in the management of investigations with international dimensions and an established liaison network abroad.
The investigation remains in its very early stages and officers remain open-minded about the motive.
Specially trained family liaison officers continue to provide support to Mr Arwani's family at this very difficult time.
A post-mortem examination is scheduled for Thursday, 9 April. Formal identification has not yet taken place.
