He was shot in the head after being caught in the crossfire during an alleged shoot-out between rivals.

Adams denies murder, possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life and two charges of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Anderson denies murder and possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.
