A sixth person has been charged after a young man was shot dead in Holloway.

Imani Allaway-Muir, 22, was killed in the Westbourne Estate this summer leaving his family heartbroken.

Dean Walker, 31, of Shearling Way, was charged with murder on Thursday December 3.

He appeared in custody at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court today, Friday December 4.

Five other men have also been charged in connection to the incident.

Paying tribute to her son earlier this year, Imani’s mother Keetha Allaway said: “He was a vulnerable boy. His brain was just so innocent. He was 6ft 2 and very handsome, but he was just a gentle giant.

“He did voluntary work with my mum twice a week, helping children with special needs. He loved children and he was so attentive.

“He wanted to get into some kind of mentoring for children with challenging behaviour like himself. That was his plan.”

A trial date is yet to be set.
