Blackfriars Crown Court heard the 27-year-old victim from south London was shot because he had strayed into Stonebridge after a football tournament on March 9 this year

Georgiou, who had vehemently denied the charges, was accused alongside three teenage boys and a 17-year-old girl.

The trial continues.
