Mr Graham's family are being supported by police liaison officers.

His friend Luke Wilson told the Evening Standard: "I have lost my best friend. I'm devastated.

"This is so depressing for future generations. If people like Shaq are getting killed there's no hope.

"Some people live on the edge and become dangerously involved in gangs ... my friend was not one of those."
