Five gang members face jail for the murder of a man who was gunned down in a Haringey street.

Sharmake Mohamud, 22, was killed in the shooting in Green Lanes on September 21, 2021.

On February 21, Ali Ceesay, 29, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to murder and two counts of grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent.

Yesterday (March 28), following the conclusion of a trial at the Old Bailey, four more people were found guilty of the same charges.

They were – Mehdi Younes, 22, of Bowes Road, Abdul Mohamed, 26, of Tottenhall Road, and two teenage boys, both aged 17, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

At the trial, the court heard how throughout the course of the day of the attack all five males arrived in an alleyway two miles away from the murder.

Various members of the group gave their mobile phones to Younes, who then passed over a large machete and a black plastic bag containing a petrol can.

Police said that Younes took the mobile phones so that those carrying out the attack could not be linked to the crime scene.

Shortly before 10pm, all of the group, except Younes, were taken to a secluded carpark off Oakthorpe Road in a stolen Ford Galaxy.

Here, they transferred into a stolen Jaguar and drove down Green Lanes, parking close to the junction with Fairfax Road.

After the group spotted Sharmake at around 10.30pm, Ceesay and one of the 17-year-old boys ran towards him.

At this point, Ceesay shot Sharmake with a handgun. The 22-year-old was struck at least twice by bullets.

Two other men who were nearby were also struck in the attack.

The group then returned to where Younes was waiting, and they all embraced in what police said was an act of celebration following the attack.

An attempt was then made to destroy the stolen Jaguar, although police later found incriminating evidence inside.

Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley, who led the investigation, said: “This was a planned attack, the motivation for which is not entirely clear.

“However, the group set out that night with the intention of finding and doing serious harm to anyone they perceived to be from a rival group.

“Whether Sharmake was their intended target all along has not been established but when they saw him walking down the street they focused their lethal intent on him.”

All five convicted will be sentenced at a later date.

A sixth defendant, Rasit Musa, 25, from north London, was cleared of wrongdoing.

The jury failed to reach a verdict in relation to another 17-year-old youth.
