Cause of Death

Saydi Abu Sheikh, who rapped under the name Giddy, and Zakariya Jeilani Mohamed, 32, who used the name Shifty, were fatally injured in Ilford on 25 October.

The attack saw neighbors horrified as police tried to resuscitate the youths on the street in front of the house.

One resident, Shama Ahmad, 50, who lived meters away, said he had heard “screams and screams” but had been unable to make out the sound of gunshots amid Diwali fireworks exploding in the area.

Another neighbor, Colin Singh, told reporters at the time: “I heard gunshots between the fireworks.

“I heard about twenty shots, I was watching a movie and I went out and there was a commotion.

“Any passerby who got in the way would have been hit as well,” he explained.

Coroner Nadia Persaud opened inquests into their deaths at East London Coroner’s Court in Barking on Tuesday, deferring them due to ongoing police investigations.

Mohamed died of hypovolemic shock after suffering stab and gunshot wounds to the torso, Ms. Persaud heard on Tuesday.

Sheikh died from stab wounds to the torso, coroner’s officer Brenda Dowsett told him.

Ms. Dowsett said: “Mr. Sheikh was at an address in Ilford when suspects entered the premises, discharged a firearm, and stabbed Mr. Sheikh, resulting in fatal injuries.”

The Met Police previously said they were called shortly after midnight on October 25 to report a shooting inside a house on Henley Road.

Scotland Yard has said Sheikh and Mohamed died at the scene and a 30-year-old man was taken to hospital with gunshot wounds in a “life-threatening condition”.

Investigation Statement

In an earlier statement, Chief Inspector Chris Wood, leading the investigation, said: “This was an unspeakable act of extreme violence that devastated two families and shocked the entire community.”

“My team is working around the clock to identify those responsible and I would like to express my thanks to the people who have already provided information, rest assured that we will act on everything they have provided.”

“The suspects responsible for this horrible act are violent criminals and it is important that they are not protected by a wall of silence, help us get them off your streets by telling us who they are.

“It doesn’t matter if you talk to us directly or anonymously through Crimestoppers, but please contact us.”

The Met Police said no arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing.
