Three men have denied murdering an electrician from Queen’s Park who was shot dead outside a KFC restaurant.
Daniel Smith, 22, was gunned down as he returned to his car in Paddington, in the early hours of May 22, 2010.
The single bullet passed through both of his lungs before striking his heart during the shooting in Harrow Road.
Appearing in custody, Kervine Kavuala, 26, Shane Lewis, 32, and Zeleke Forde, 30, spoke only to confirm their identities and enter not guilty pleas during a brief hearing at the Old Bailey.
