Chigwell: Fourth Man Charged Over Father's Death
A fourth man has been charged in connection with the death of father-of-two from Chigwell who was killed by a moving lorry after chasing robbers from his cash and carry store.
27-year-old Reiniks Kivers, of no fixed address, will appear at Barkingside Magistrates' Court on December 2 charged with the manslaughter of trader Shammi Atwal and robbery, Scotland Yard said.
Mr Atwal confronted gang members armed with metal bars and a sledgehammer and defended his wife during a robbery at their business in Barking, east London, on 14 October.
Up to 10 suspects ran from the Glen & Co cash and carry shop and were followed by the victim.
Mr Atwal was pronounced dead at the scene. The lorry driver was not arrested.
The victim's 37-year-old wife, who suffered minor injuries, was treated at the scene but did not require hospital treatment.
Two Lithuanian men, Vidmantas Gonskoves, 26, of Plaistow, east London, and Aurimas Diliunas, 27, of Barking, were charged last month with manslaughter and robbery following Mr Atwal's death.
They appeared at the Old Bailey on October 21 and are due to enter pleas on January 20 alongside Farhan Sheikh, 38, of Barking, who has been charged with conspiracy to rob.
A 25-year-old man arrested in connection with the incident has been bailed to a date in December, police said.
