Case synopsis:

Car dealer Robin Charles Wood, 47, was shot dead on his front doorstep on Saturday 2 May 1998. The case remains unsolved.

Mr Wood was at home with his partner and ten year-old son in Northolt, west London, when there was a knock on the door at around 10.40pm.

His partner Kath Pribisevic answered it to find to a man calling himself Terry and asking to speak with Mr Wood.

As the victim approached the front door he was shot in the neck with a sawn of shotgun. Mr Wood bled to death at the scene on the Racecourse Estate.

The suspect, described as white, aged between 25-35, 5'7 in height, of slim build, with sharp facial features and wearing an unzipped dark-coloured anorak, was seen to run into Kempton Avenue.

On the 15th anniversary of the murder, detectives offered a £20,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person responsible.

Detective Inspector Simon Webb, who is investigating Mr Wood's murder, said: "This was a brutal and calculated murder in front of a young child.

"Fifteen years on, and as a result of new information, we are now offering £20,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person responsible for Mr Wood's murder."
