Birthday woman shot dead in street
Police are hunting the killer of a woman who was gunned down while out celebrating her birthday.
Sabrina Moss, of Neasden, north west London, died in hospital after being involved in a double shooting. Police said she was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time after going out to enjoy her 24th birthday with friends.
Another 24-year-old woman is in hospital. Her injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
Detective Chief Inspector John Sandlin of the Metropolitan Police said: "Enquiries continue to establish the full circumstances of this tragic incident. At this early stage, I believe the two women were innocent parties who were caught in the wrong place at the wrong time."
Scotland Yard said officers were called at 4.12am yesterday to reports of shots fired in the street in Kilburn High Road, Kilburn, north west London, at the junction with Messina Avenue.
Police and London Ambulance Service found two women suffering from gunshot injuries and both were taken to London hospitals. Ms Moss was pronounced dead later.
Mr Sandlin said: "I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the shooting, or who saw anything suspicious in the Kilburn area, to call police. In particular, I need to hear from anyone who saw two males who came into the High Road from Messina Avenue and, after the shooting, made off on foot back along Messina Avenue."
One man has been arrested in connection with the investigation.
Tributes to Ms Moss flooded onto social networking site Twitter, with many of her friends reporting that she had a young child. Adjei Adu wrote: "My heart goes out to her family and the lil one she's left behind, sleep well Sabrina Moss." Leila Hassan tweeted: "My Thoughts Are With Your Family... A Beautiful Young Woman, Mother and Daughter!" Another tweet read: "Lost the cousin I was close with when I was a child.. R.I.P Sabrina Moss."
