Barbershop worker Grineo Daka, from Stratford, was fatally shot at the Phoenix Snooker Club in Lea Bridge Road, Leyton, shortly before 3am on July 7 last year.

Detectives investigating the fatal shooting have issued two images of people who are wanted in connection with his death.

Grineo, who worked at Celebrity Barbers in Romford Road, Manor Park, went with two other men to the club. The 27-year old got involved in a disagreement with another group before shots were fired. Police, including firearms officers, rushed to the club and found Grineo suffering from a gunshot injury.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and a post-mortem examination, that took place at Walthamstow mortuary on July 9 2019, gave the cause of death as a single gunshot.

Police are trying to trace Jeton Krasniqi, aged 26 who was living in north London and has links to the Hertfordshire area. Krasniqi was born in Kosovo and is described as six foot tall and of stocky build.

Det Ch Insp Mark Wrigley, who leads the investigation, said: “While this investigation has made significant progress and one person is awaiting trial, I am still keen to speak to the two people shown in these images.

“We understand that Grineo had gone to the snooker club where he was then involved in an altercation with others and a number of shots were fired and as result he lost his life, others were also injured. We need the community to support us and help bring those responsible to justice.”

Anyone seeing either of the two men should not approach them, but should instead immediately call 999.
