A teenager has been found guilty of a shooting that injured a 15-year-old boy after detectives pieced together days of CCTV footage to link him to the scene.
Kamaree Jeffrey, 19 (16.10.04) of Elmbridge Walk, E8 appeared for trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court where on Friday, 26 January he was found guilty of grievous bodily harm and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.
The conviction follows an investigation by officers from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command.
Detective Inspector Gary Harreman said: “It was pure luck that this was not a murder investigation.
“Jeffrey recklessly fired a gun twice into a group of people and it is only right that the jury has found him guilty. In the near future he will have time to reflect on the consequences of his actions.”
During the trial, the court heard that police were called at 20:22hrs on 25 May 2023, to reports that a gun had been fired into Garden Place in Hackney.
Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a 15-year-old boy with a gunshot injury to his leg. He was taken to a hospital in east London for treatment.
An investigation was immediately launched and it was established that the suspect rode a bike to the scene. He got off and shot at the victim before quickly cycling away from the scene.
Jeffrey was arrested on 19 July 2023 and was charged that same day.
He will be sentenced on Monday, 25 March.
