Coroner says man shot outside nightclub was unlawfully killed
8:57am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
A MAN murdered outside a nightclub was unlawfully killed, an inquest has ruled.
Jimoh Plunkett, 24, was fatally shot outside the Zest nightclub in Ipswich in December 2005.
Nobody has ever been convicted of his murder, following the incident where four people were shot including a 19-year-old from Stanway.
The inquest yesterday, at Ip-City in Wherstead Road, heard tensions exploded first inside and then outside the club when several shots were fired.
18 people have been arrested during the past almost seven-and-a-half-years but nobody convicted of murder.
Peter Dean, senior coroner for Suffolk, recorded a verdict of unlawful killing and urged anyone with information to contact Suffolk Police.
One of the suspects has since been shot dead in what may have been a revenge killing in 2008.
Two people were arrested in Southend and questioned on suspicion of the murder of Mr Plunkett, from south London, in 2007 but released without charge.
Anyone with information call Suffolk Police on 101.
