Two held over takeaway shooting
|The Deceased - Agnes Sina-Inakoju|
Two people have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 16-year-old girl who was shot in the neck in an east London takeaway.
Agnes Sina-Inakoju was shot through the window of Hoxton Chicken and Pizza, in Hoxton Street, Hackney, on Wednesday night, by two people on mountain bikes.
Police said those being held were a 16-year-old boy and a 21-year-old man.
Detectives say there is no evidence Agnes was a gang member and it is likely she was not the intended target.
She died of her injuries in hospital on Friday morning.
The shooting is being dealt with by detectives from Operation Trident - the Metropolitan Police unit which investigates serious crime in London's black community.
It would sometimes seem that Satan runs rampant and unopposed at times. When youngsters are continuing to operate with such evil intent and continue shooting other youngsters, it is a clear sign that we are not far off complete insanity in my mind. As a member of the black community, I have to ask us all, what the hell is going on? Where has it gone so badly wrong? I have a dream said Martin Luther King – This sure wasn’t it! I have many thoughts on the how's and why's, but right now I just want to say sorry to a dear child who had only just come out of childhood and had a better destiny than that which has befallen her. When considering where to put your cross on the election ballot, please don't forget to ask the candidates what they intend to do about crime as well as the economy.
My prayers are with Agnes family and I would ask the saint's to rise up and take back the spiritual realm in their communities and stop this madness.
