Machete wielding gang members have been jailed for the murder of a 19-year-old man near a busy cinema complex in a ‘ferocious’ post code rivalry attack.

The gang were arrested by police after boasting about the attack in on 'drill' rap music videos.

Tyrell Graham, 18, of Leyton, was jailed for life, to serve a minimum of 25 years for his role in the calculated plan to attack a rival gang.

On the night of February 22, 2019, the group of seven males – including Graham, Sheareem Cookhorn, 21, Jayden O’Neil-Crichlow, 17, Shane Lyons, 17, Ojay Hamilton, 17, and two individuals unknown to the police – rode to Wood Green on bikes in search of rivals.

The night before the attack, the group had parked Peugeot 307 on the Broadwater Farm Estate, to be their ‘fall-back’ point after the attack.

Between them they carried three knives, a machete, a small sword, a handgun and a shotgun.

The attackers, having located the victims – Kamali Gabbidon-Lynck, 19, and a 20-year-old man – in Lordship Lane near the Vue cinema complex, brazenly pulled their weapons and chased the victims.

Cookhorn, who was jailed for life to serve a minimum of 28 years, fired shots but missed. One bullet was later recovered in a nearby shop; it had travelled through an open door of the store, narrowly missing customers and staff.

Kamali and the 20-year-old man ran for the safety of their parked car.

However, the 20-year-old man was encircled and attacked; he was stabbed eight times and shot once in the buttock – he survived with ‘life changing’ injuries.

The attack was interrupted when Kamali - who had managed to return to his car - drove towards the gang to frighten them off.

The gang turned on Kamali, who tried to escape by reversing but got stuck between parked cars.

He fled his vehicle and attempted to barricade himself inside a nearby hairdresser’s but was pursued inside where he suffered fatal stab injuries – he died from his wounds in hospital at 3.00am the next day.

The gang fled the scene on bikes, returning to their parked car, where they changed clothes and left the area.

Cookhorn of Park Lane, Tottenham and Graham, 18 of St Helens Place, Leyton were found guilty on Friday, December 6 of murder and attempted murder.

Cookhorn was also found guilty of possession of a firearm with intent.
