KILLED: Marcus Innocent
A 24-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with the rush hour murder of a man in south London.
Perry Sutton will appear at Bexleyheath Magistrates' Court today [Jan 24] accused of shooting dead 35-year-old Marcus Innocent on a busy London street in December. He is also charged with possession of a gun.
It is believed that Mr Innocent was set upon by a group of 15-20 people moments before he was killed.
Prior to the murder, the group, described as black and white individuals, were seen congregating behind a parade of shops in Kingsman Street at the junction with Lord Warwick Street in Woolwich.
Police believe the victim was initially set upon by one person within this group and then by a larger number after which he was shot.
Some of the group were seen to run down Lord Warwick Street towards Frances Street whilst others got into cars parked in Lord Warwick Street by the rear of the shops. These cars then made off from the scene.
Daniel Burgess, 32, appeared in court on December 24 also charged with the murder of Mr Innocent. He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on March 7.
