“The public will see an enhanced police presence over the coming days while we provide support to our colleagues who are investigating this murder, as well as our partners within the local community. I would urge anyone with concerns to speak with my officers, so that we can take action to address them.

“Detectives are working hard to find out what happened, and I would ask that you do not speculate with regards to a motive. We need to find out the facts and you can help us to do this.”

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, who is leading the investigation, said: “We are still in the early stages of trying to establish what happened on Jarrow Road on Wednesday evening and we are still trying to establish the motive for this attack.

“Gabriel, who worked as a private hire driver, was found fatally injured inside his car. We need to know why he was there, and who else was present.

“Were you in the vicinity of Jarrow Road from 6.30pm that evening? Did you see anyone acting suspiciously? If you were driving in the local area and have dash cam footage, please check it to see if you captured something that might help our investigation.

“It is vital that we gather every piece of evidence so that we can identify who is responsible for taking Gabriel’s life.”

There have been no arrests and enquiries continue.
