Accused Hoxton schoolgirl killer’s Facebook gang boasts
Lookout shows allegiance to ‘London Fields Boys’ on social network as teen has photo of diamond encrusted weapons on phone, court hears.
A gang member accused of gunning down an innocent girl in a chicken shop boasted his allegiance to the group on Facebook, a court heard.
Agnes Sina-Inakoju, 16, of St Brelades Court, De Beauvoir estate, was shot with a sub-machine gun through the window of Hoxton Chicken and Pizza after two youths in hoodies rode up on bicycles.
The schoolgirl was shot after a member of the London Fields Boys was beaten up a few days earlier.
The prosecution allege the shooting was a bungled retaliation by the gang on rivals the Hoxton Boys.

Smoured, who also had ‘Fields’ in his profile name, also appeared in a photo on the phone of a 17-year-old accused of possessing the murder weapon, the court heard.
The teen, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also had pictures of diamond encrusted weapons and the letters ‘L’ and ‘F’ made out of money on the phone, jurors were told.
He was found cowering in his cupboard when officers swooped to arrest him, the court was told.
Smoured and Dunkley allegedly tasked a 15-year-old boy - who is also in the dock - with storing the weapons under the bed he shared with his little brother.
Dunkley and Smoured deny murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.
The 17 year-old boy denies firearms charges and assisting an offender.
The 16 year-old boy denies firearms charges.
The trial continues.
