Man, 61, dies after being found with fatal head injury as teen boy, 16, arrested on suspicion of murder

A MAN has died in hospital after being found with a fatal head injury – and a teen boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Mehmood Shamshi, 61, was found with a life-threatening head injury on Staines Road, Hounslow, before being rushed to hospital where he sadly died.

Cops were called to the scene just before 1am on August 18 and the London Ambulance Service treated the 61-year-old.

He was then taken to hospital in a critical condition – but he sadly died from his injuries on August 21.

Police have launched a murder probe in a bid to understand the circumstances of Shamshi's death.

A post mortem examination was carried out on 25 August and the cause of death was given as head injury, police confirmed.

Cops have also arrested a 16-year-old on suspicion of murder following the investigation.

He was taken into custody before being released on bail to a date in September.

Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin, leading the investigation, said: "Mehmood's family and friends have been left devastated by his death and we are working hard to work out the sequence of events that led to him sustaining injuries, which we believe ultimately led to his death.

“I would like to speak to anyone who was in the area, including drivers who may have any dash cam footage, of Staines Road near to the junction of Cromwell Road on 17 August between 10:30pm and 11:30pm, who may have seen anything suspicious."
