A MURDER investigation has been launched after a man was shot dead as he walked along Hendon Way at the height of rush hour this morning.

The victim, believed to be in his 50s was shot at around 8.30am at the junction of Garth Road.

Early reports say he was shot several times as he walked along the footpath on the northbound carriageway of the busy A41, which would have been clogged with traffic at that time.

Police, paramedics and an air ambulance rushed to the scene and found him with multiple gun shot wounds. Scotland Yard confirmed at around 10am the victim has died from his injuries and specialist murder detectives have been drafted in to investigate.

The A41 remains closed to traffic until further notice as forensic officers carry out a finger tip search of the scene.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information can call the Metropolitan Police Service on 0300 123 1212 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

There have been no arrests at this time.
