Four more men have been arrested over the murder of a 24 year old shot dead while out celebrating her birthday in Kilburn.

Sabrina Moss (pictured) died of a gunshot wound after being shot in Kilburn High Road in the early hours of Saturday 24 August 2013.

Raids were carried out at five addresses across north west London early on Wednesday 2 October, leading to the arrest of four men on suspicion of murder.

A 28-year-old man was arrested at an address in Cricklewood, a 19-year-old man and a 28-year-old man were arrested at an address in Kilburn and a 19-year-old man was arrested at an address in Wembley.

All four have been taken into custody at a north London police station.

Searches were carried out at the addresses where the men were arrested and two further addresses in Cricklewood and Kilburn.

Another search was also undertaken at an alleyway in Kilburn.

Mum-of-one Sabrina had been standing outside Woody Grill in the Kilburn High Road when shortly before 4.20am, shots were fired in the street and Sabrina and a friend were injured.

Sabrina and her friend were taken by ambulance to hospital but Sabrina was pronounced dead later on Saturday morning.

A post-mortem examination held at Northwick Park Hospital Mortuary on 25 August gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the chest.

Her friend, Sabrina Gachette, has now been released from hospital, but she is still receiving medical treatment for the injuries inflicted during the attack.

Two men were initially arrested in connection with the investigation after attending a north London hospital suffering gunshot wounds. They were later released with no further action.

A third man was arrested on Tuesday, 27 August. The 22-year-old was subsequently charged and was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on 19 November for a plea and case management hearing.

An incident room is open at Hendon under Detective Chief Inspector Andy Partridge from the Homicide and Major Crime Command.

Detectives continue to appeal for witnesses and information and anyone who can assist police are asked to call the incident room on 020 8358 0300 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
