A court has heard that two teenagers were shot in an alleyway in Milton Keynes in a row over drugs turf.

19-year-old Mohammed Abdi Farah and Amin Ahmed Ismail, 18, were both shot in the head on the Fishermead Estate at just after 10pm on May 26 2011. It is alleged that they were killed after one of them handed out a drug dealer's cannabis for free.

Fuad Awale, 25, of no fixed address, Sharmake Abdulkadir, 22, of The Fleet, Springfield, Milton Keynes, and Yahya Harun, 22, of Fishermead Boulevard, Milton Keynes, deny two charges of murder. Abdulkadir also denies possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence.

The trial at Luton Crown Court continues.
