Agnes Sina-Inakoju the 16 year old teenage girl shot on Wednesday evening at a Hoxton take away, died at the Royal London Hospital this morning.
Witnesses said they heard shots and saw the victim slump badly injured. A person on a mountain bike fired through the restaurant door at the Hoxton Chicken & Pizza store in Hoxton Street, just after 7pm on Wednesday.
Local resident Matthew Mulden, 27, said: “I heard two shots. Then paramedics were there trying to revive her.”
The suspects – described as black, aged 14-18 years, and both wearing dark clothing – then made off down Falkirk Street towards Kingsland Road.
Detectives said it was too early in the investigation to say if the shooting was gang-related.
There have been no arrests and police are continuing their investigations and are appealing to anyone, with information that may assist the investigation to call 020 8733 4704. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
