8 years ago130 views



A teenage girl who was shot in the neck while waiting at a takeaway has been named by police.

Agnes Sina-Inakoju was standing with a group of friends inside Hoxton Chicken and Pizza in Hoxton Street, Hackney, east London, at around 7pm on Friday when detectives believe a shot was fired through the window.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the 16-year-old remains in a critical condition at an east London hospital.

Detective Chief Inspector John Crossley said: "At this early stage, we believe two males approached the premises on mountain bikes. One fired a shot through the window, hitting the victim, who was inside the premises with friends."

He said the suspects were believed to be black youths, aged between 14 and 18. Both were wearing dark clothing and made off down Falkirk Street towards Kingsland Road.

The shooting is being dealt with by detectives from the Met's Operation Trident - the unit which investigates serious crime in the capital's black community. Police said it was too early in the investigation to say if the shooting was gang-related.
