Old Bailey hears Dothan ‘Sunny’ Gordon’s partner was also shot but survived
A callous gunman shot dead a man before trying to kill his disabled partner, a court heard.
Jurors at the Old Bailey were told Dothan Gordon, formerly of Kensal Green, was gunned down in his home in Ealing, west London, as he tried to act as a middle-man in a £100,000 drugs deal.
Daniel Bidace Anthony, 30, is accused of killing the 32-year-old before turning his gun on Amy Ashitey, 28, as she lay in bed.
Miss Ashitey, a double amputee who was confined to a wheelchair after falling from a building in a failed suicide attempt, was shot twice with one bullet piercing part of her lung and the other missed before the gun jammed.
