A father-of-one from Wembley who tried to get rid of a shotgun and a car used in a drive-by shooting killing in Sudbury has been jailed for 10 years.
Renardo Johnson, 25, of Chaplin Road, admitted destroying crucial evidence in the aftermath of the murder of 20 year-old Romario Green in July last year.
The Old Bailey heard the convicted drug dealer drove the Ford Focus to Luton before it was set on fire and hid the weapon, which was later found on an associate’s roof.
Mr Green was blasted in the chest in the Harrow Road, after he argued with a group of men inside the Ford Focus in the early hours of 2 July last year.
One of the men inside the car, Denny Da Silva, 24, has already been convicted of murder and jailed for life with a minimum of 27 years before parole.

The judge said: “This gun was used to kill and was taken to a place of safety. Vital evidence linked to the shooting was lost.
“This is an extremely serious offence, assisting those who were engaged in a killing.”
Johnson pleaded guilty to possession of a prohibited firearm and two counts of perversion of the course of justice for helping dispose of the gun and the car.
He was sentenced to five years and six months for the shotgun charge, four years and six months consecutive for perverting the course of justice for hiding the gun and two years and six months concurrent for perverting the course of justice by disposing of the car.
