A collection of colourful flowers had been laid by wellwishers alongside the police tape which marked off the crime scene yesterday.

Two women who did not want to talk hugged in the street after they placed the flowers at the guarded police cordon.

A card pinned to some flowers read: 

Feels like yesterday I heard your laugh- you will be missed by plenty. 

The message on another card said: 

You was always smiley- I will miss your face.

Councillor Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council has since released a message to the community.

"I was shocked and saddened to hear of the fatal shooting in North Cheam this morning.

"My thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased young man and residents nearby.

"The Council will do all it can to support Sutton Police as it investigates.

"That we usually live in such a safe borough makes events such as these even harder for the community.

"The Council will also be offering support to any residents who need it with our partners and volunteers."
