Issa, who was also known as ‘Cripple Sam’ and ‘Black Sam’, was shot dead by a gunman who pulled up next to him at a traffic light near the Bedford Centre in the early hours of the morning.

It’s believed an AK47 was used and more than 30 empty bullet cartridges were found on the scene.

It’s understood Krejcir and Issa had a fall out a few weeks before the shooting, but Krejcir has strongly denied being associated with the Lebanese national.
