A friend of murdered nursery teacher Sabrina Moss broke down in tears in court today as she relived how they were gunned down in a street in Kilburn.
Sabrina Gachette, 24, said they had been enjoying a ‘fantastic evening’ celebrating Miss Moss’ 24th birthday before the killers opened fire.
The Old Bailey heard both women were caught in the hail of bullets from a MAC-10 submachine gun and a sawn-off shotgun outside the Woody Grill bar in Kilburn High Road on August 24 last year.
Miss Gachette survived following ‘invasive’ surgery but Sabrina Moss died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Giving evidence, Miss Gachette wept as she described hearing a loud explosion.

“Until that point I didn’t know what was happening. I thought it was fireworks.”
Two other men, Mahad Ahmed and Edson Da Silva, were also injured during the shooting.
Miss Gachette said that the group had noticed two ‘shifty’ men hanging around outside the bar earlier that evening.
It is claimed the killers were targeting a rival group from South Kilburn.
Miss Moss, who had a four-year-old son, lived in Neasden, and worked at Alice’s Wonderland nursery in Stonebridge.
Martell Warren, 22, of Napier Road, Kensal Green, Hassan Hussain, 29, Cranhurst Road, Willesden Green, and Yassin James, 19, Chaplain Road, Wembley, deny murder, three counts of attempted murder, two counts of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life and two counts of conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm.
A fourth man, Simon Baptiste, 29, denies conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm.
The trial continues.
