A reconstruction of events leading to the death of Rico Gordon has been shown on the BBC's Crimewatch programme.

The 21-year-old, from Notting Hill in London, was shot dead on Stapleton Road, Easton, Bristol on 3 July.

He had been in the city to visit his girlfriend.

Shaka Anderson, 30, from Notting Hill, has been charged with his murder and is due to appear at Bristol Crown Court in February.

Five other men previously arrested remain on police bail, pending further inquiries.

The programme was shown on BBC One on Thursday evening, four months after Mr Gordon's death.

Mother's appeal

Det Supt Sue Scott said: "This is a very complex investigation and we're seeking out more suspects in order to bring those responsible for Rico's death to justice.

"The reason we're going on Crimewatch is to not only appeal to new witnesses who haven't yet come forward, but also to appeal to those who have already spoken to us who may not have told us all they know."

She said having the appeal on a national programme meant people who did not live in Bristol or London but who had been in the area at the time of the shooting - on the weekend of the St Paul's Carnival - could be reached.

Mr Gordon's mother Anna and his girlfriend Maya Jama appealed for witnesses on the programme.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokeswoman said officers would be taking calls throughout the night.
