Man charged with teacher's murder

A 22-year-old man will be charged with the murder of a nursery teacher who was gunned down while celebrating her birthday.

Martell Warren is accused of killing mother-of-one Sabrina Moss who was shot in Kilburn High Road on August 24, the Crown Prosecution Service said.

He also faces three counts of attempted murder and two counts of possessing a gun.

Sarah Maclaren, from the CPS London Homicide Unit, said: "The Crown Prosecution Service has today, 29 August, authorised the Metropolitan Police Service to charge Martell Warren, 22, with the murder of Sabrina Moss, who was fatally shot in Kilburn in the early hours of Saturday 24 August 2013.

"Mr Warren has also been charged with three counts of attempted murder and two counts of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

"This decision was taken under the threshold test of the Code for Crown Prosecutors."

He will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Friday.

Miss Moss was shot in the chest and another woman, also 24, remains in hospital after suffering a gunshot wound. Her condition is not life-threatening. Police believe the pair were "in the wrong place at the wrong time" when they were injured.

Scotland Yard confirmed that Warren, of Station Road, Hillingdon, west London, had been charged with Miss Moss' murder and the attempted murder of Sabrina Gachette.

The two other counts of attempted murder related to two men who suffered gunshot wounds and were initially arrested in connection with the shooting, before being released without charge.
