GMP continues to seek justice for Cheriff and Junior four years on

Dear Resident

We are appealing for key information to find those responsible for the deaths of Junior Ajose and Cheriff Tall on Sunday 21 June 2020.


Despite the time passed on what is now the fourth anniversary of their deaths, we have dedicated, specialised detectives from our Major Incident Team remaining focussed on seeking justice and finding answers for their families.

The shooting took both the lives of 36-year-old Junior Ajose and 21-year-old Cheriff Tall in the early hours of Sunday 21 June 2020 in a car park off Caythorpe Street in Moss Side.

Did you or someone you know think you saw or heard something suspicious? Whatever it is, no matter how small you may think it could be, we need you help to do what is right for their families.

A £50,000 reward for key information that leads to the discovery and conviction of the killer remains available as we try to tirelessly piece together evidence to bring the offender to justice.


Anyone with information, however small or insignificant it may seem, should contact GMP in confidence on 0161 856 2035, quoting incident number 221 of 21/06/20. 

Alternatively, reports can be made anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. 

Information, including pictures and videos, can also be uploaded anonymously to the Major Incident Public Portal for ‘Operation Tarnbrook’ here: https://mipp.police.uk/operation/06GMP20S30-PO1
