Violent crime in London claims youngest victim so far this year

A 16-year-old boy who died after he was shot in the face has been named locally as Amaan Shakoor – the youngest murder victim in London this year.
The teenager was attacked in east London on Monday night – just minutes after a 17-year-old girl was shot and killed a few miles away while she was out with friends.
Community leaders are appealing for calm – amid what many believe is an escalating gang war which is claiming the lives of more and more young people.
