Det Ch Insp John Crossley, Operation Trident, said: “Agnes was a totally innocent victim of gun crime who had her whole future ahead of her.

“On 14 April last year two members of a gang cycled up to a chicken shop window in broad daylight and shot a submachine gun indiscriminately through the window and the bullet struck Agnes in the neck at point blank range.

“Despite medical treatment and assistance at the scene from police and an off-duty paramedic and doctor she died a short time later.

“In dealing with the individuals involved we have also recovered a number of weapons including the murder weapon and convicted two younger members of the gang who were assisting the gunman by holding and moving the weapons.

“We are pleased with today’s verdict but these convictions can only be achieved by the courage of members of the public coming forward to give vital evidence in this case. I would like to thank them for the courage that they have shown.

“I would finally like to pay tribute to Agnes’ family for the dignity they have shown and our thoughts are with them during this time.”

Hackney’s Borough Commander, Ch Supt Steve Bending, said: “Those convicted today have committed a crime that is as reckless as it is cowardly.

“They are each condemned by every right-minded person for playing their part in taking the innocent life of Agnes, a young lady with her whole life ahead of her.

“I know that all our thoughts are with Agnes’s family, as those responsible are sent to prison to face the consequences of their actions.”
