BBNaija star Khafi Kareem has been left devastated after her younger brother Alexander Kareem was killed in a London shooting on Monday, June 8.

The Sun UK reported that Alexander, 20, was shot close to his family house in Shepherd’s Bush, West London. He was said to have been walking back home from a convenience store when he was shot by a yet-to-be-identified person in the early hours of Monday.

Witnesses say he screamed out “help me” as he lay dying in the street at 12.40 am. Passers-by tried to give him CPR before paramedics reached the scene but Alexander was pronounced dead a short time after.

According to the post-mortem Alexander died from gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen.

UK Police are appealing for information about a white Range Rover driven by his killers which was found burned out three miles away from the scene of the shooting. Det Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley said:

“We are determined to bring those responsible for this unnecessary and terrifying violence to justice. We continue to appeal for witnesses who may have seen or heard what happened to come forward. The white Range Rover seen in the area and later found burned out is also a key part of the investigation.”

When Alexander turned 20 in March, Khafi wrote on her Instagram page:

Khafi Kareem, who is also a policewoman in London, yesterday posted a black picture on her page to mourn him. Her Instagram page is now private, as at the time of this report.
