The 19-year-old former Milton Keynes Academy pupil was shot in Eaglestone on Tuesday last week.

Two men have already been arrested and charged with his murder.

Meanwhile friends of Somalian-born Suhaib, who went by the ‘street’ name of SK, launched a crowdfunding page in his memory.

One friend posted: “I’m proud of the man you were going to become, although your family and the world never got to see you achieve your true inner goals. You were heading towards the right path that counts, and some of us know that.”

He added: “Growing up we made mistakes... ain’t no-one out there that’s perfect. It’s all about learning and growing and you were a living example of that.

“I salute your parents because they raised you the best they could and Allah loves you, bro.”

Suhaib’s grieving family has also paid tribute to him.

They said: “Suhaib will be missed. He was a kind-hearted young person who was sensitive to the needs of others around him.

“If he ever wronged anyone he never failed to apologise. He touched the lives of everyone around him.

“He will always remain in our memories. We ask you to keep our family in your thoughts and we also want to thank everyone for their support during this time.”

Police arrested 33-year-old Mohammed Moor the same day the shooting took place. He has been charged with murder and remanded in custody.

Later a 32-year-old woman and 35-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

The woman was released without charge.

But Albert Prempeh, 35, was charged with murder and possession of a firearm.

On Wednesday a third man, 31, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
