Reward offered in Bow murder appeal
A £20,000 reward has been offered by police for information regarding the murder of a man from Poplar.
Wayne Stockdale, 42, was gunned down at the junction of Rounton Road and Knapp Road in Bow on 6 May last year at around 10.20pm.
His family have launched an appeal for anyone who knows anything about his death to come forward.
Wayne's sister Jacqueline Stockdale said: "Wayne sadly died at the age of 42 from a gunshot to the head, and left behind a loving partner, three children and a grandson. Wayne was also a loving son, brother and uncle.
"Wayne's murderers are still at large and continue to live their lives normally unaware and uncaring of the devastation they have caused to all of our family."
At the time of the shooting Wayne was riding a bicycle when two male suspects armed with handguns opened fire. He died four days later in hospital.
The suspects who were described as black or Asian and wearing face coverings, escaped by car, heading towards Knapp Road.
Detective Chief Inspector John Crossley said: "We have always maintained that Wayne was not the intended target for this incident, which saw shots fired both at him and into the street.
"It's now over a year since the murder took place and we hope the offer of an reward will encourage people to come forward with information.
"If you have any information about Wayne's death, please contact us and help bring closure to Wayne's family."
