Detectives have launched a murder investigation following the death of a man in Wembley this morning, 7 April.

Police were called by the London Ambulance Service (LAS) at 11:15 hrs today to reports of a man found suffering what is believed to be gunshot injuries to his chest.

The man, aged in his late 40s, was found sitting in a dark coloured Volkswagen Passat, in Greenhill, junction with The Paddocks, Wembley.

The London Air Ambulance also attended. The man was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:48 hrs.

Detectives believe they know the identity of the deceased, however formal identification awaits. Next of kin have been informed.

A post mortem examination will be arranged in due course.

The investigation is being carried out by detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command. They are appealing for any one who may have been in the area of Greenhill, junction with The Paddocks, from about 10:00 hrs this morning who may have seen a dark coloured Volkswagen Passat or anything suspicious to get in touch.

At this very early stage detectives retain an open mind regarding the possible motive.
