Family’s grief as ‘kind and caring’ man, 20, is ‘murdered in cold blood’
Written by Rother Radio News on 17/11/2020
The heartbroken family of a 20-year-old man gunned down in a Sheffield house have been left devastated by his “cold-blooded murder”.
Ramey Ghalib died after being shot inside a property in Grimesthorpe Road South in the Burngreave area of the city at around 1am on Monday, November 16.
He was rushed to hospital but died from his injuries with police cordoning off the street.
Forensics teams were seen scouring the area for evidence on Monday and police said they are treating Mr Ghalib’s death as a “targeted attack.”
In the wake of his shock death, the family have set up a fundraiser for the 20-year-old who lived in Bressingham Close – a cul-de-sac just over 100m from where he was shot.
Mr Ghalib’s cousin said: “Ramey was a very kind and caring boy who was loved by many.
“He had a very fun personality and was very funny which makes us extremely sad that he was murdered so coldly.”
In memory of Mr Ghalib, his family are raising money to build a water well in his name.
A post on a GoFundMe page which has raised over £2,000 in less than 24 hours, said: “We are raising money on behalf of our beloved Ramey Ghalib who sadly passed away today at age 20.
“We are looking to build a well as a form of Sadakah Jariya.
“Please make duaa for Ramey and keep him in your prayers, and try donating whatever you can. May Allah accept your donations & Insha’Allah it will be of benefit for our dear cousin.”
