Armel Gnango sentenced today
Victim: Magda Pniewska
A man has been jailed for at least 20 years for the murder of a woman caught in a “Wild West” style shoot-out.
Magda Pniewska, 26, was shot in the head in New Cross, south London, in October last year.
The care assistant was talking on her mobile when she was shot. Her sister in Poland told the Old Bailey she heard Ms Pniewska’s last breath down the phone.
Armel Gnango, 18, was jailed for life for murder when he was sentenced at St Albans Crown Court.
For the protection of the public, the judge also gave Gnango a minimum 12-year sentence for attempted murder and a five-year sentence for possession of a firearm. Both sentences are to run concurrently.
Mr Justice Cook told him: “The fact of the matter is that you went armed to find your man who then shot at you and a gun fight ensued.
“Either of you might have been killed.
“You plainly intended to kill the other and instead of either of you dying an innocent nursing assistant was killed instead.”
The Old Bailey jury during the trial in May was told it was not Gnango’s weapon which fired the fatal bullet but he was still responsible for the killing because he was involved in the gunfight. Continue Reading…
Did Gnango and his wanna be gangster cronies think that they were living in the wild west? Or had they just finished listening to “Get Rich Or Die Trying”?
I bet those sad pathetic little losers loved every minute of that gun fight. They were living like their favourite rapper – “true G’s”. Cos you know …this is how it is when you live in the make believe “Ghettos” of London. “It’s all about survival – ya get me blud!!!!”.
Those murderous a-holes should have been the one’s left with bullets lodged in their heads, not that poor innocent young woman.
Rest In Peace Magda Pniewska
