Khafi Kareem younger brother, Alexander Kareem who was shot dead on a London street was a victim of mistaken identity, police believe.
Alexander Kareem, 20, was killed after suffering gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen on Askew Road in Shepherd’s Bush just after midnight on 8 June.
Detectives said a white Range Rover Evoque linked to the murder was later found burnt out nearby in Ealing.
Alexander Kareem screamed out “help me” as he lay dying in the street at 12.40am.
In a statement Mr Kareem’s family said they were “truly heartbroken” by his death.
“He was so enthusiastic about what he did, he loved IT and computers. His life was tragically cut short by such a senseless act of violence which no one should ever have to endure.
“He will never have the ability to grow up and live the life we all can, he had plans to go to university in September.
