SIX TEENAGERS have now been charged with murder after the death of Gabriel Bringye, 37, a private hire vehicle driver whose death sparked protests from his colleagues and calls for better safety measures to be taken to protect them.
Police and paramedics from the London Ambulance Service and Air Ambulance went to Jarrow Road, N17, at 7.20pm on 17th February after receiving reports that a man who was sat inside a car in that road appeared to be unresponsive. They found Gabriel, who lived locally, apparently suffering from stab wounds. Although paramedics did administer emergency medical treatment, he was pronounced dead at the scene at 8pm.
The young men charged with murder are:
•four teens who cannot be named as they are aged under 18 (two aged 15, one 16, one 17) – one of the 15 year olds has also been charged with handling stolen property;
•David Adeyanju, 18, of Golders Green;
•a third 15 year old, who was charged with murder later than the others and who was also charged with robbery in connection with a separate incident.
