Two men from Hackney have been jailed for brandishing a loaded gun in the street – at the shooter who had blasted their friend in the face at close range.

That man, 22-year-old Ramel Francis from Station Road, Forest Gate, was jailed for 20 years over the attempted murder of his victim, also 22.

Aaron Small, 25, of Cranwich Road, Stamford Hill, and Nana Nyanor, 25 of Bouverie Road, Stoke Newington, were jailed for eight years and seven years respectively for possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.

Francis’ victim – the other men’s friend – survived and is out of hospital.

A fight broke out between the men in Muswell Hill in the early hours of November 5, following a private party at the Socialite Bar. The brawl spilled onto the street and Francis fired a number of rounds at the victim.

Det Con Bryan Sullivan said: “Francis acted with complete disregard for public safety.

“Small and Nyanor, in some misguided sense of loyalty to the victim also brandished a loaded firearm. Thankfully, the gun did not fire and nobody was injured as a result.”
