A Sheffield law firm has paid tribute to one of its solicitors after he was gunned down in the city at the weekend.
Khuram Javed, aged 30, was killed on Clough Road, near Bramall Lane, at around 9.40pm on Saturday, April 10.
An investigation into his murder is under way.
Khuram, a married dad-of-two, worked at Alison Law Solicitors on London Road, where friends and colleagues have been left shocked at his death.
Paying tribute to him, the firm said: “The Alison Law family are devastated to learn of the death of their dear friend and colleague Mr Khuram Javed. A life cut tragically short; our thoughts are with his family at this terrible time.
“Khuram Javed has been a member of Alison Law Solicitors for over four years. He originally started out as a paralegal but his amazing dedication to the firm and to learning more meant that he was promoted to a trainee solicitor and subsequently after qualifying has been a practicing solicitor for 18 months.
“We are in complete shock at the tragic events that have taken place.
“Khuram was a beloved and hard working staff member with a bright future ahead of him.
“To all that knew him whether professionally or personally understood what an amazing, loyal and great man he was. We can’t begin to explain how much of a loss his passing will have on us.
“Our hearts go out to his family and friends and especially to his wife and young children in this most difficult time.
“The Alison Law family are heartbroken at the loss of this young, talented and honourable man.
“We will miss him dearly.”
Glowing tributes to him have also been paid online, including one from Majid Archie Khan, who described Khuram as ‘an inspiration and a role model’.
“He was a loving son, beloved husband and a caring father of two,” he said.
“Khuram was a positive and cheerful person who approached everyone with open arms. He has supported many in the community through his kind, caring and generous nature and would always go above and beyond to help others. He has left everlasting impressions on everyone that he encountered.
“All the family, local community and everyone he was known to are devastated by the tragic loss.”
