Kevon Forsythe was shot in Brixton Road.
Two men were tried for his murder but acquitted. The judge said that there was no case against one of the men and the other man had said that he had not been in the area and was cleared by the jury.
It was said that one of the men had told the other to 'Either flash him or flush him'.
One of the men admitted that he had earlier been stabbed in the back during an argument by Kevon Forsythe the night before but denied that he had gone looking for revenge. The man had said 'It's just life on the streets of Brixton. It's very common. He's a drug dealer, I was a bit scared.'.
Kevon Forsythe was from Jamaica and had arrived in the United Kingdom about six months earlier.
He had been with his girlfriend at the time and she was also shot.
Kevon Forsythe was a teenager.
