Call for witnesses to Kilburn shooting

Shelley Marsden

A WOMAN shot dead in Kilburn was simply in the ‘wrong place at the wrong time’, say police.

Nursery teacher Sabrina Moss was out for her 24th birthday last Saturday when she and a friend were gunned down at 4.12am outside fast-food outlet Woody Grill on Kilburn High Road, an area whose nightlife is popular with Irish in the capital.

Moss, of Neasden, died in hospital later that night. Another 24-year-old that was with her at the time remains in hospital but her injuries are not life-threatening. The two are believed to have been innocent parties caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, according to detectives investigating the double shooting.

Detectives and police from the Homicide and Major Crime Command have launched a murder inquiry into the double shooting and are appealing for witnesses from the local community.  Two men have been arrested in connection with the investigation.

If anyone witnessed the shooting or saw anything suspicious in the Kilburn area early that morning, they are asked to call the incident room at Hendon on 020 8358 0300 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Det Ch Insp Sandlin said: “In particular, I need to hear from anyone who saw two males who came into the High Road from Messina Avenue and, after the shooting, made off on foot back along Messina Avenue”.
