A week after 25-year-old Ramane Wiggan was shot dead in West Norwood, detectives investigating his murder returned to the scene in the hope they could encourage any witnesses to come forward.

Officers were handing out leaflets and speaking to residents on Wednesday afternoon (April 3).

Detective Chief Inspector John Massey said: “Our investigation continues and as part of that we will be returning to the scene today in the hope of encouraging anyone with information to come forward.

“We are really keen to hear from witnesses or anyone who can help – please approach an officer at the scene today or call us at the incident room or via Crimestoppers.

“Drivers may have vital dash cam footage that captured the events of last week and we would urge them to also please come forward if they were in the area at the time.”

Ramane was found shot at 4.11pm on Wednesday, March 27, by paramedics on Friar Mews in West Norwood.

The 25-year-old from Tulse Hill was pronounced dead at 4.45pm, with a post-mortem examination giving the provisional cause of death as a gunshot wound.

So far, two 27-year-old men have been arrested on suspicion of murder. Both were released on bail until a date in late April.

Police say they are keeping ‘an open mind’ about the motive and describe events leading up to his death as ‘unclear’.

What they can confirm is that a man wearing dark clothes with his head covered was seen fleeing the area, on foot.

The man was heading towards Canterbury Grove immediately after gunshots were heard.

Anyone with information should call police on 020 8721 4868 or 101.

To give information anonymously, contact Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111 or Fearless.
