Police investigating the murder of Syrian preacher Abdulhadi Arwani have made an arrest.
Officers arrested a 46-year-old man in Brent on Sunday (April 12), on suspicion of conspiracy to murder. He remains in custody at a central London police station.
West Londoner Mr Arwani, a 48-year-old father-of-six, was found slumped at the wheel of his car, a dark-coloured VW Passat, in Greenhill, Wembley, on Tuesday (April 7). He had been shot in the chest.
A post mortem examination gave the cause of death as gun shot wounds. Officers say they remain open-minded about the motive.
Detectives have established that Mr Arwani, who had served as an Imam in an Acton mosque, had driven near to the scene around mid-morning on Sunday (April 5), and had been parked up in Havenwood, where he had remained for a short time.
Together with the victim's family, they are appealing for anyone who was in the area on Sunday April 5 or Tuesday April 7 to contact police. They particularly want to hear from anyone who saw either Mr Arwani or the car.
