A Kilburn woman has been found guilty of sheltering one of the killers of a young mother after she was gunned down as she celebrated her 24th birthday.
Fiona Cullum, 25, of Rowley Way, provided a safe haven for Hassan Hussain, 30, as he and Yassin James, 20, were hunted by police following the murder of Sabrina Moss.
Ms Moss, a mother-of-one from Neasden, was shot dead in Kilburn High Road in August 2013.
Jurors were told the shooting was part of an ongoing rivalry between the South Kilburn gang and the Kensal Green boys.
The Old Bailey heard Cullum lied to officers when quizzed about Hussain after he was arrested two months later.

Hussain, James and their getaway driver Martell Warren, 23, were jailed for a total of 111 years at the Old Bailey last year.
Cullum claimed she was so ‘out-of-it’ on drink and drugs she had no idea Hassan was sheltering in her small flat.

But an Old Bailey jury found her guilty of two counts of perverting the course of justice for sheltering Hassan and providing a false statement to police.
She was acquitted of perverting the course of justice for sheltering James after the jury could not reach a verdict.
She was standing trial alongside Reid Daniel, 24, from Hayes, and Matthew Bouzemada, 22, of Holland Road, Harlesden, who were both convicted of assisting getaway driver Martell Warren, 23.
Daniel also helped him to get rid of his mobile phone.
Rakheed Daniel, 21, of St Margaret’s Road, Kensal Green, was found not guilty of the same offence.
Judge Stephen Kramer QC told Cullum ‘be under no illusions, the likely sentence is one of custody’ as he bailed her to be sentenced on April 10.
Bouzemada and Daniel were remanded in custody to be sentenced on March 17.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Partridge, from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “Misguided honour to protect cold-blooded killers now means that these three individuals are likely to serve a prison sentence for the significant role that they played.
By providing shelter, alibis and disposing of mobile phones for those responsible for murdering a young woman and seriously injuring another, the three compounded the suffering of the victims’ families.
Great lengths were taken to ensure that killers evaded the capture of the police and I hope that today’s conviction serves as a warning to all those who insist on protecting criminals.”
