Three men jailed for life for a gang-related shooting that left a five-year-old girl paralysed have been told their ruthless crime was "an attack on society itself".
Nathaniel Grant, Anthony McCalla and Kazeem Kolawole were given life sentences at the Old Bailey for gunning down Thusha Kamaleswaran at her aunt's south London shop in March last year.
They were hunting for a rival gang member when Grant opened fire into the store, hitting shopper Roshan Selvakumar in the face and Thusha in the chest.
Passing sentence, Judge Martin Stephens QC told them: "Not one of you has, in my judgment, shown a sliver of remorse."
He went on: "This is an exceptional case of the utmost gravity. Shooting into a shop, a confined space where it was known there were people present, is an attack on society itself by men who saw themselves as outside the law and above the law."
The trio were found guilty last month of causing grievous bodily harm with intent to Thusha and Mr Selvakumar, as well as attempted murder of their intended victim Roshaun Bryan. Grant will serve a minimum of 17 years, and Kolawole and McCalla at least 14 years.
The judge told them: "Much of what you did was captured on CCTV and has been shown on television screens across the land. One can only imagine the effect on the public when they saw what you had done."
He said Kolawole, 19, of Kennington, south-east London; McCalla, 20, of Streatham, south London; and Grant, 21, of Camberwell, south-east London, had gone out with a "determined, premeditated intention to kill" that day.
Judge Stephens continued: "Mr Selvakumar was hit in the head but miraculously survived with a piece of bullet remaining in his head.
"Five-year-old Thusha, who was dancing around with her family in the shop, was hit in the body. Only the skill and devotion of the medical teams who became involved saved her life but she remains paralysed below her chest and this condition is permanent. This simple but devastating statement of the essential facts of the case illustrate the gravity of these offences."
