Suspected revenge killing of man shot by police named

A man shot dead by police in a suspected revenge attack from a veteran gang member has been named by detectives as Hector Ferran.

The man, who has not been named by police, had spent time in prison and returned to the Outlaws motorcycle gang, detectives said.

Two men, aged 54 and 47, were arrested on suspicion of murder.

In a statement, Scotland Yard said the dead man had links to the Outlaws. “He had been previously affiliated to the Outlaws, however in recent months his re-joining the criminal gang has been reported to his former associates in [the] British Maltese Mongrels organisation.

“Officers are familiar with both organisations and investigate the possibility of this shooting being a payback from an associate of this organisation who has been locked in a row with the deceased man.

“At this time it would not be appropriate to comment on the circumstances of this shooting due to the large number of persons it relates to.

“Detectives continue to make good progress in the investigation and at this time it would not be appropriate to comment on their outcome or the reliability of the information received.”

A force spokesman said: “Police in London were called at 1.19am on Monday to reports of an incident at a garage in Layer Road, Wembley, London. A man has been shot and killed.

“The two suspects, two black men aged 54 and 47, have been arrested on suspicion of murder. They are currently being questioned at an east London police station.”
