Police are appealing for fresh witnesses to come forward to help ensure justice is done for murdered teenager Kyle McDonald.

Mr McDonald, 19, was found seriously injured in Coppock Close, Battersea on September 18 last year. He was pronounced dead at the scene by London Ambulance workers at 8.14pm.

Detectives believe the Fulham teen may have sustained his injuries in Kambala Road, SW11, from where he staggered into Musjid Road then Fawcett Close before finally collapsing in Coppock Close.

A post-mortem examination held at St George's Hospital gave the cause of death as a single gunshot wound.

An incident room has been open since at the Homicide and Major Crime Command.

Officers are keen to trace potential witnesses, including several pictured below in Coppock Close around the time of the murder.
