Mohammed Tawfik, 19, and a 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were charged this morning with killing Mohanna Abdhou.

The 20-year-old, known as Montana to her friends, was shot in Malvern Road just before 9pm on May 26.

She was with her friends close to a children’s playground near Dickens House when they were approached by two males on bicycles.

Tawfik, 19, had initially been arrested on June 6 but was released, before being re-arrested on October 31.

A 16-year-old from west London was also arrested in the early hours of November 1.

They will appear in custody at Hendon Magistrates’ Court later today.
