Teenager charged with murder of Shaquille Graham in Catford after shooting near nightclub

A teenager has been charged with the murder of a man who was shot dead near a nightclub in southeast London.

Tyler Roberts-Emmanuel, 18, is due to appear at Croydon Magistrates' Court today over the death of 30-year-old Shaquille Graham.

Mr Graham was shot in Catford Broadway at about 4.30am on 10 March and died at the scene after being found with a gunshot wound by paramedics.

Roberts-Emmanuel, of no fixed address, has been charged with murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, the Metropolitan Police said.

The Met added Mr Graham's family are being supported by police liaison officers.

Mr Graham's friend, Luke Wilson, told the Evening Standard: "I have lost my best friend. I'm devastated.

"This is so depressing for future generations. If people like Shaq are getting killed there's no hope.

"Some people live on the edge and become dangerously involved in gangs... my friend was not one of those."
