Atiyebi Omuaru was shot dead at a garage in Barking
Police have released CCTV images of two suspected gunmen wanted in connection with a murder in east London.

Atiyebi Omuaru, 25, from Barking, was shot dead when he was ambushed by two men at the Nirro Garage in the Lyons Industrial Estate on 2 January.

After being shot, Mr Omuaru dived over the counter for cover at which point the gunmen appeared to lean over and fire again, police said.

Scotland Yard are offering a 20,000 reward to help catch the killers.

Lying in wait

Mr Omuaru had just entered the reception to collect his car after a service when two armed men came in and shot him.

He fell to the floor but managed to get up again and a struggle ensued during which several shots were discharged.

He dived over the counter for cover at which point the suspects appear to lean over the counter and fire again towards him.

They then fled the garage, escaping in a dark-coloured Vauxhall Omega saloon car.

At least three other people were inside the River Road premises at the time of the shooting but were not injured.

Police believe the gunmen may have been in the area for some time before the shooting because their car was caught on CCTV earlier.

One of the suspects is black, 20 to 30 years old, 5ft 6in to 5ft 8in, and was wearing a black Puffa-style bomber jacket.

His accomplice is black, aged 20 to 30, 5ft 10in to 5ft 11in, and was wearing a yellow hooded high visibility jacket.
