Three men are due in court charged with the murder of a 20-year-old who died in hospital after being shot in west London.

Sebastiaan James-Kraan was gunned down in the early hours of June 9 on Templeman Road, Ealing, sparking a frantic response from emergency services.

Despite their best efforts, the young man succumbed to his injuries three days later at a London hospital.

Scotland Yard detectives launched a manhunt following the tragedy, which occurred around 2.10am in the usually quiet residential area. On Saturday, three teenagers from west London were charged with murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Those charged are 18-year-old Javier Rodriguez-McDonald, of Emanuel Avenue, Acton; 19-year-old Jayson Rodriguez-McDonald, of Uxbridge Road, Ealing; and 19-year-old Emmanuel Mgbean, of Alperton Lane, Wembley.

All three were due to appear in custody at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Monday (June 24).

“Sebastiaan’s family have been updated on this development as they continue to be supported by specially trained officers,” said a Met police spokesperson.

Officers attended along with LAS and found Sebastiaan with life-threatening gunshot injuries. He was taken to hospital, but sadly died on Wednesday, 12 June.

A post-mortem carried out on Friday 21 June found Mr James-Kraan’s cause of death was a gunshot wound.

A man in his 40s was arrested in Bristol on Friday (June 21), on suspicion of assisting an offender. He has since been released on bail.
