THE family of a 33 year old dad shot in the head in Walton Court fear he may never recover from the attack.

Yesterday sources close to the victim, named locally as Kevin Williams, say he is ‘still unresponsive’, more than a month after the shooting.

In a statement issued through police, a member of his family said: “He is still in a critical condition and the prognosis for his recovery is uncertain.

“He has suffered a very significant brain injury and is still unresponsive.

“Doctors are worried that he will not recover from this attack.

“He is a loving son and father and we are devastated by what has happened to him.

“We would urge anyone who has any knowledge of this incident to please talk to the police.”

Wheelchair user Mr Williams was shot at his Stour Close home on March 28.

No arrests have yet been made.

It is thought the victim was expected to be a Metropolitan Police witness in a forthcoming court case, but officers have said he was not living in a ‘safe house’.

Detective Chief Inspector Gill Wootton said: “We do not believe that this was a random attack and believe that the victim was specifically targeted at his home.

“He was a resident in Aylesbury, however, we know that he spent a lot of his time in north west London where he grew up.

“I would appeal to people from both local communities to help us with this investigation and ask anyone who has knowledge of this shooting, to please speak to us.”

Cops still want to speak to a white man described as being dressed in an outfit similar to a delivery driver.

The man, in his 40s and about 5ft 9ins, was seen in the close between 9.30am and 10am on the day of the shooting.

He was wearing a dull green uniform and was carrying a clipboard.

No arrests have been made in connection with this incident.

Anyone with any information about the incident should contact Det Ch Insp Wootton by calling 101, quoting reference number 345 28/3.
