16 February, 2017 — By William McLennan

A 16-year-old boy has been charged with murder after a man was gunned down in a busy street during rush hour.

The teenager, who can not be named because of his age, is accused of murdering 21-year-old Yasir Beshira in Kilburn High Road at around 5pm on December 8.

He was arrested at an address in Camden yesterday (Wednesday) in a series of simultaneous raids by murder police across the country. A 17-year-old arrested in Hertfordshire has been released on bail, while two men, aged 20 and 22, remain in police custody after being arrested in Peterborough yesterday.

A post-mortem found that Mr Beshira was shot once in the stomach.
