The Metropolitan Police have issued the following statement:
Detectives investigating the murder of Khadar Hussein have released an image of a man they wish to speak with in connection with the incident.
The Metropolitan Police Service is also offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person(s) responsible for Khadar’s murder.
The image is of Trai Williamson, 19 (29.08.1993) who is believed to be from the South East London area.
He was last seen on Wednesday, 8 May and is known to frequent areas around Penge, Anerley and south east London, although police retain an open mind on his exact whereabouts.
Williamson is black, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall, of slim build with short hair and has a London accent.
Police were called at 19:57hrs on Wednesday, 8 May to reports of a man shot in Kenilworth Road, SE20.
Officers and London Ambulance Service attended to find Khadar Hussein, 19 (19.01.94) of Beckenham, suffering a gunshot wound. He was taken to Kings College Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 07:55hrs on Thursday, 9 May.
A post-mortem examination held on Saturday 11 May gave cause of death as a gunshot wound to the head.
An incident room has opened at Lewisham under Detective Chief Inspector Russell Taylor (HSCC).
DCI Taylor said: “We are taking the unusual step of publicising Trai Williamson’s name and image as it is critical he is found as soon as possible.
“The likelihood that he is being sheltered by someone in the hope that he remains out of sight is one line of inquiry that we are pursuing. I would appeal to anyone who may have accommodated Williamson or his helping him at present, to look to their conscience and do the right thing and inform the police of his whereabouts.
“Any information that is provided will be treated in the strictest of confidence and I urge anyone with any information no matter how small to let us know.”
Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 020 8721 4868; if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
For an immediate sighting of Trai Williamson members of the public are urged not to approach him but to call 999.
