Detective Chief Inspector Jim Eastwood, who is leading the investigation, had said.

7 It came after officers were called to Cayton Road in Greenford, west London, on Tuesday to reports of a stabbing and Mr O’Halloran was declared dead at the scene.

8 Detectives believed Mr O’Halloran was stabbed in Western Avenue at about 4.00 p.

9 m. before managing to travel around 75 yards on his mobility scooter to Runnymede Garden where he flagged down a member of the public for help.

10 Mr O’Halloran was originally from Ennistymon, Co Clare, in the west of Ireland.

11 The local community in Clare expressed their deep shock following the pensioner’s death.

12 Mr O’Halloran is survived by his family, including his sister, two brothers, nieces and nephews.

13 Local Fine Gael Senator, Martin Conway, said Mr O’Halloran visited Ireland regularly and that his death had left his home community in Ennistymon and north Clare in deep shock and sadness.

14 Mr Conway noted the passionate musician was very popular in Greenford and often busked for charity.

15 Footage on social media showed Mr O’Halloran busking to raise money for Ukraine months before the killing.

16 He could be seen playing his accordion and smiling, with a makeshift blue and yellow collection box strapped to his frame, in the video posted online in June.
Former Labour MP Stephen Pound paid tribute to Mr O’Halloran, an ex-constituent whom he knew from the busker’s regular public presence in the area.

17 He told GB News: “Tom was a real local character.

18 He would be outside Greenford
Station playing the accordion, occasionally the harmonica.

19 “He was a sweet, lovely man.

20 He was well-liked and well-loved, but, above all, he was one of those characters who will cement an area.
