A growing number of tributes was today being left at the scene where Sheffield teenager Tarek Chaiboub was killed in a suspected gangland shooting...Hmmm, you'd think the fact he had just been released from hospital for surviving a stabbing might have tipped his friends off to his potential survivability, wouldn't you..?
A "Spital Lane resident and mother" spoke about the pointless waste of life, while another message from a close friend, Sacha, read: "What can I say, baby, I never saw myself writing on flowers for you".
Chief Superintendent Broadbent is looking on the positive side:
Mr Broadbent admitted the shooting was likely to have been gang-related and that the victim had been known to police "on a small number of occasions".I expect that's what Magda Pniewska thought about London...
But he stressed members of the public are not at risk.
"We are quite satisfied the victim was the intended subject of the assault and he had been involved in some altercations previously. This city is still a safe place to live, work and visit."
