Two gang members were jailed for a minimum of 30 years today for killing an innocent schoolboy yards from his home. Nana Darko-Frempong, 18, was not associated with any gangs but was killed because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Judge Nicholas Cooke said the gang members had shown no sign of genuine remorse. He added: "This was a gang-organised shooting of a wholly innocent teenager."

Mr Darko-Frempong was shot dead in a drive-by shooting outside his home in Tulse Hill, south London, in June 2011. The killers were members of the Roadside Gangsters based in the Camberwell area of south London.
