Successful prosecution in gangland shooting



Louise McCullough successfully prosecuted a member of the South London ABM(“All ‘Bout Money”) “Team Raw” gang following the conclusion of a three-week trial at Inner London yesterday on a charge of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

He and fellow gang members undertook a “ride out” in a rival gang’s territory before shots were fired at members of that rival gang in a children’s play area in Brixton. The case was wholly circumstantial and relied on painstaking work by both the Metropolitan Police’s Trident Unit and the Prosecution.

Sentencing will take place on 12th May 2023.
