Catching a Killer: A Bullet Through the Window

Review

A distraught man dials 999 and yells at the dispatcher: “My friend just got shot… my friend just got shot.” As he desperately carries out CPR under the operator’s instructions it becomes clear that there is little hope. The victim is dead.

So begins the hunt for 19-year-old Suhaib Mohammed’s killer after he was shot through the window of a known drug den in Milton Keynes. It’s the last investigation for the detective leading the inquiry before he retires, so he feels the pressure particularly keenly.

It’s another gripping documentary that follows, step by step, the routine of a murder hunt. Though this one turns out to veer from the usual path almost immediately, when a man turns up at the police station. He wants
to confess to the killing.

Suhaib Mohammed’s sister and father talk movingly of a boy who had so much potential, yet took the wrong path. 

Summary

In the early hours of the morning in a quiet Milton Keynes street, a single bullet was shot through an open window. The victim was a 19-year-old man. What followed was a frantic 999 call and an investigation by Thames Valley Police to find the culprit. This documentary follows the case as the detectives try to piece together the moments leading up to that fatal shot. But it soon turns out there is more to the inquiry than meets the eye with a potential second suspect.
