A man has been charged with the murder of Tino Makwanya who was fatally shot in Croydon earlier this month.

Stephen Weatherley, 41, of Thornton Heath was charged on Friday evening, June 23, on the same day he was arrested.

Tino, who was from Croydon, was killed on June 9. 

A post-mortem examination on Sunday, June 11 at Croydon Mortuary gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the head.

Detectives believe that night Tino was a passenger in a Volkswagen Golf.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “A motorbike, with a pillion passenger, pulled up alongside the car and shots were fired on the A232, the Croydon flyover, at the junction with Park Lane.

“The driver of the car suffered minor injuries.”

He will appear in custody at Bromley Magistrates’ Court today (24 June).
