This stolen Range Rover Sport is the suspected car used by the killer of 14-year-old boy Corey Junior Davis.

Police have released a CCTV still image and video of the vehicle to encourage witnesses and anyone with information to come forward and break the silence surrounding the teenager’s death.

Corey, known to his family and friends as CJ, was blasted in the head with a shotgun at close range while sitting next to a playground in Moore Walk, Forest Gate, at 3.08pm on Monday, September 4. He died in hospital the next day.

His 17-year-old friend, who was also shot, has potentially life-changing injuries to his leg and faces a long rehabilitation process after being discharged from hospital.

There have been no arrests to date and CJ’s family are desperate to bring his perpetrators to justice.

The CCTV still shows a metallic grey 2011 Range Rover Sport HSE TDV6, travelling along Wyatt Road near the junction with Upton Lane approximately 15 minutes before the killing.

Captured at 2.53pm, the car’s windows are dark tinted from behind the driver’s seat to the back of the vehicle.

The video footage shows the same car fleeing the scene of the crime at 3.15pm, driving erratically in Romford Road in a northbound direction towards the A406 north circular.

Polie say the original number plate was EY11 XSG but was D11 at the time of the shooting.

The car also has a unique vehicle identification number of SALLSAAG3BA292779 and engine number of 0534374306DT.

It was stolen from Haverhill Road, Balham, south-west London on August 24, 10 days before the killing.

Leading investigator DCI Dave Whellams, of the homicide and major crime command, said: “We have reason to believe this car could well still be out there - someone could have bought it in good faith for instance, with no idea they have a stolen vehicle.

“I’d be grateful if anyone who has bought an identical make and model of car since September 4 could check its vin number.

“This can usually be found by looking from outside the vehicle at the lower left side of the windscreen, or in the driver’s side door jam or under the bonnet, and contact us urgently if it matches the one above.

“The engine number is also readily accessible to check.”

DCI Whellams added that a garage or scrap dealer may have inadvertently worked on the vehicle or parts of it and is also urging people in this sector to check their records.

Anyone with information should contact police on 020 8345 3775 or 101. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org
