Five London gang members have been convicted of murder in connection with a brutal attack which left one man dead and another with life-changing injuries.
21-year-old Sheareem Cookhorn and 18-year-old Tyrell Graham were convicted of murdering 19-year-old Kamali Gabbidon-Lynck and attempting to murder an unnamed 20-year-old, with Cookhorn also convicted for possession of a firearm with intent.
Three 17-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons were also convicted of murder for Gabbidon-Lynck’s murder, and of section 18 grievous bodily harm in connection with the gang’s second victim.
“On the night of the murder, the group of seven males, including the five defendants and two unknown individuals set off on bicycles… to search for suspected rival gang members,” an official statement from the Metropolitan Police recalled.
“Such was their violent intent, that between the five defendants they carried at least five knives (including a machete and a small sword), a handgun and a shotgun,”
