During the trial of the three men found guilty of killing Sabrina Moss it was suggested the shooting was linked to a tit-for-tat feud between the South Kilburn Gang and the Kensal Green Boys which has already claimed two lives.

Hassan Hussain, 29, of Cranhurst Road, Willesden Green, Yassin James, 20, of Chaplain Road, Wembley, and Martell Warren, 23, of Napier Road, Kensal Green, have all been convicted of the mother-of-one’s murder in Kilburn High Road, today.

Ms Moss and her friend Sabrina Gachette were only hit because they were standing next to the intended targets - members of the South Kilburn Gang (SKG).

The ongoing feud is claimed to have resulted in the murder of Tyno Kavuala, a SKG member known as Tank, who was shot dead as he sat in his car in Scrubs Lane, Harlesden, in March 2007.

Three years later in May 2010, innocent Daniel Omari Smith, 22, an electrician from Queen’s Park, was shot dead in a suspected case of mistaken identity which was blamed on the Kensal Green Boys.

Hussain has no known gang affiliation but served a five year jail sentence for GBH for stabbing his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend six times.

Two of his friends, Lee Wallace and Jayson Hassan, had been shot dead in a car park in Islington, north London, over a £3,000 drug debt in 2010.

James claimed he was affiliated with the Wembley Fornia Dons gang but denied any involvement in the murder.

The Mac10 submachine gun used to murder Sabrina has been used in two shootings the West Midlands in 2009 and 2012, although nobody was injured.

It was next used in a shooting at the notorious Poolcrest snooker club in Kilburn High Road in January 2013. Again nobody was injured.

The venue has been stripped off its licence following the discovery of drugs on its premises in several police raids.

Neither of the guns used in the attack on Sabrina Moss and her friend on August 24 last year have been recovered.
