Police are offering a £50,000 reward for information leading to the killer or killers of a man shot dead as he sat in his car in the driveway of his home.

Father-of-three Redwan El-Ghaidouni, 38, was murdered in Uxbridge, west London, on 3 February.

Detectives have also released a e-fit of a man seen in the area an hour before the father-of three was shot eight times at about 18:00 BST.

His partner has described his death as "a nightmare".

The man in the e-fit was seen standing on the verge by a telegraph pole at the junction of St Andrews Road and Vine Lane, opposite Mr El-Ghaidouni's house.

Police say that Mr El-Ghaidouni was linked to criminality and drug importation.

Det Ch Insp Noel McHugh said: "Redwan was gunned down, almost immediately after he pulled his car into his driveway. This was a very brutal and well-planned murder. It is likely the gunman would have been supported by other people.

"We have been examining Redwan's past and he was linked to criminality and drug importation. I am sure that Redwan's murder is being widely talked in criminal circles and networks."

Mr El-Ghaidouni's partner, whose name has not been released by police, said: "It has been six weeks since Redwan was so brutally taken from us, it feels like a nightmare.

"The police have been working tirelessly around the clock, but they need your help, for all his family and his children's sake make that call. We desperately seek the truth and to obtain justice for Redwan."
