"He sustained a brutal attack and we are determined to trace whoever is responsible and bring them to justice.

"Mr Shaw was well-known locally and I believe there are people in the community who know who is responsible for his murder.

“On Wednesday afternoon, officers carried out a stop and speak operation to prompt the memories of members of the public who may have been in the same area last week.

"This was a worthwhile exercise and I have been encouraged by the response from the public.”

The police have spoken to around 60 people in the area and have thanked the public for their assistance.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in the Jedworth Road area between 7.25pm on Wednesday, 21 April, and 5.55pm on Thursday, 22 April, to come forward.

"In particular, I am urging anyone who visited the building where Mr Shaw lived between these times to contact us if you have not already spoken to officers.

"We are reviewing CCTV footage of those coming and going from the building and would encourage anyone who visited during those times to make themselves known so that they can be eliminated from enquiries.

"Please do not assume that we know the information you may hold.

"Any piece of information you have - no matter how small or insignificant you think it is - could be vital to our investigation and may help us complete the bigger picture.

"I can assure you that any information you provide will be treated with the utmost confidence.

“If you have not yet spoken to police and have information about the murder, please contact us via 101, quoting reference number 2750 of 22 April. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
