Police have stepped up a murder investigation that saw armed police storm a holiday home on the Kent coast after a man was gunned down in the street.
A probe was launched following the death of Kyle Kelson, who was found with a gunshot wound to the head in Brocks Drive, near Croydon, on Friday, June 19.
Despite the best efforts of police and paramedics, the 25-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene at 1.45am.
Four days later, firearms officers arrived in force in Joy Lane, Whitstable, shortly before 7.30am, sealing off the street while they approached the £850,000 detached property.
It resulted in the arrest of 28-year-old Luke Matthews, who was subsequently charged in connection with the killing.
Aaron McGrath, of Oakhill Road in Sutton, and Gary Hyde, from Cheam, were later charged with the same offence.
And now police have confirmed that a fourth man is due to appear before magistrates in connection with the killing.
Lee Matthews, 25, of no fixed address was charged with murder last night.
He was also charged with possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life in relation to a second incident on Friday, June 19.
He will appear in custody at Bromley Magistrates’ Court today.
