The attack happened on the same street where 17-year-old Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton was found with a fatal gunshot wound in May this year.

At the time Rhyhiem’s mother Pretana Morgan called for a halt in the wave of violence in the capital.

She said: “Let my son be the last and be an example to everyone. Just let it stop. What must be, must be.

“It’s not about race, it’s not about nation, it’s not about culture. Nothing. It’s just a human race.

“Just one human race. So children, please let my son be the last.”
