Double shooting suspects released

British police say they have released three men suspected of killing a Norwegian-Somali youth and his friend.



19-year-old Norwegian-Somali Mohamed Abdi Farah and Amin Ahmed Ismail, 18, were gunned down in Milton Keynes on 26th May.  Mr Farah, who was said to be on a trip visiting friends, was killed instantly by a single shot to the head. Mr Ismail died in hospital the following day.

The three male suspects, all in their early 20s seen fleeing the scene were apprehended following raids on three separate addresses, but were subsequently released on police bail until 04 July.

“I am aware that the fact we have not charged anyone yet may start to cause frustration within the community. Investigations like this are complex and include a large amount of forensic analysis which inevitably takes time,” Det. Supt. Rob Mason, leading the investigation, told local paper The Milton Keynes Citizen, Friday.

“Within a week of the shootings over 200 statements have been taken, over 200 leads have been called in and 350 pieces of possible evidence has been collected from the scene,” he continued.

The crimes are not said to be gang-related, but tensions have been extremely high on the estate where both victims lived. Families and friends are still in mourning. There have also been problems with gang violence before.

“It has made the estate a worrying place to live,” an unnamed source told The Foreigner yesterday. 

BBC News reports the gun used has still not been found and police officers are searching every possibility.

Police have appealed for members of the public to come forward with any information they might have, and promised to protect the identity of any witnesses.  ¨

“I have personally met with the families of both victims and they are being updated on a daily basis and continue to be supported by the Force Family Liaison Officers,” added Det. Sup. Mason.
