Shaun Campbell, 23, from Barnet, and Gavin Macintosh, 24, of no fixed address, fired shots at a property in Gloucester Close just before 1pm before moving on to a second target in Bruce Road.

Luckily no one was injured by their actions on January 26 this year.

The Old Bailey heard shortly after the shooting police traced and stopped a Vauxhall Corsa Campbell was travelling and arrested him, 23-year-old Lamar Bowen and a 20-year-old woman who was driving.

Campbell and Bowen were subsequently charged and the woman was released with no further action.

Macintosh was arrested at a hotel in Cricklewood on March 10.

Campbell and Macintosh admitted possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Bowen, who was accused of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and possessing a firearm whilst being a prohibited person, denied the charge,

He was acquitted following an eight-day trial

Yesterday both were sentenced to 13 years and six months imprisonment for possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, and an additional three years for the danger he had posed to public safety.

Detective Constable Paul Valverde of the Met’s Trident Area Crime Command said: “The sentences handed down are the result of combined hard work and tenacity not only from Trident officers but also the witnesses who bravely came forward and assisted the investigation.

“The sentences handed down have taken two very dangerous individuals to a place where they’re actions no longer pose a danger to the public.”
