Detectives wish to speak with Patrick Adams, 59, and Constance Adams, 54, in relation to a 2013 shooting in Islington.
At approximately 10:00hrs on 22 December 2013 the victim, who was 51-years-old at the time, was sitting in his black BMW X5 on Wyclif Street at the junction with St John Street, EC1 when he was approached by a man and woman. He was shot in the chest by the man.
