Four arrested over Wembley fatal shooting

Police have arrested four men over the fatal shooting of 32-year-old Craig Small in Wembley in July.

Metropolitan Police said in a statement the men, aged between 28 and 34, were arrested in the early hours of Wednesday morning and taken to London police stations.

Mr Small was shot outside a shop on Harrow Road in Monks Park on the evening of Friday, July 7, and died in hospital a short time later.

“We have tonight executed a number of warrants and arrested four men in connection with Craig’s murder,” said detective chief inspector Helen Rance, who is leading the investigation.

“This is a significant development but I would continue to urge anyone with information that may assist our inquiry to make contact with us.”

After his death, Mr Small’s mother described him as a “peacemaker” who “had changed his life for the better”.

“Craig meant everything to us,” Carol Small said.

“He was a loving son, a father, an uncle, he was a peacemaker. He was the soul of the family, he lit up the room and now the light has gone.”
