According to The Sun UK, the 20-year-old was killed by a yet-to-be-identified person on Monday close to his family home in Shepherd’s Bush, West London.

It was gathered that Alexander was gunned down while walking home from a convenience store. He was said to have screamed “help me” as he lay down writhing in pains.

Passers-by were said to have administered a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on him while awaiting health officials before he breathed his last.

A friend, who spoke with the news outlet, said his death has left Khafi and other members of the family distraught.

“His family is distraught. Alex wouldn’t talk down to anyone – he was friends with everybody,” the friend was quoted as saying.

“They are all good people. His sister Khafi spreads positivity through her YouTube account. She wakes up and prays for people at 7.30 every morning.

“Alex’s brother is trying to get back from Australia to grieve with the rest of his family, his mum is completely devastated.”

“After leaving school Alex was the same goofy guy – he was always happy – and always had a smile on his face,” the source added.

A post-mortem report on the deceased body revealed that he died from gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen.

The police have called on the public to provide useful information on a white Range Rover reportedly driven by his killers, which was said to have been found burnt three miles away in Ealing.

“We are determined to bring those responsible for this unnecessary and terrifying violence to justice,” Wayne Jolley, Det chief inspector, said.

“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.”
