The deceased, David Adegbite

“He was such a smart guy, really clever and good at math. He was due to start university.

“He was no gangster or drug dealer; he was a good family guy. He always talked about how much he loved his mother and wanted to make her proud."

18-year-old Mary told UK Evening Standard, “He was popular with everyone. I just can’t believe there are people out there in London with guns, you expect it in America but not here."

Punch reports that two 20-year-olds have been arrested by the UK authorities in connection with the murder.

One of them was reportedly released on bail pending further inquiries while the second remains in the custody of the police.

Adegbite had dreamed about studying at Middlesex University in the United Kingdom.

May the soul of the departed rest in peace.
