Boy, 16, in custody over Camden shooting

ITN reports that police are questioning a 16-year-old boy suspected of murdering Sharmaake Hassan, 17, who was shot in the head in Camden on Saturday.

Hassan, the 15th teenager to die as a result of knife and gun crime in London this year, died in hospital on Wednesday. Believed to have been a member of The Money Squad gang, Hassan was found guilty at Thames Youth Court last month of possessing and offering to supply cannabis.

The arrested teenager is being held at a north London police station.

The ITN report added that the local authorities tried to ban alleged gang members from Camden at an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (Asbo) hearing a fortnight ago.
