Kamali Gabbidon-Lynck died after being stabbed five times

Five gang members have been jailed for murdering a man in a London knife attack described as being “reminiscent of a Hollywood film”.

Kamali Gabbidon-Lynck, 19, was stabbed at a salon in Wood Green last February.

He was killed as a result of “a longstanding and mutual hatred” between two rival gangs, the Old Bailey heard.

Violence broke out in the dock and the public gallery as the judge gave the attackers – two men and three teenagers – life sentences.

Members of the public saw the stabbing in Wood Green, the jury heard

Police officers and prison staff were attacked as Tyrell Graham, 18, Sheareem Cookhorn, 21, Jayden O’Neil-Crichlow, 17, Shane Lyons, 17, and Ojay Hamilton, 17, were jailed.

Sentencing, Judge Foster told the gang the attack had “terrified members of the public.”

The court heard Mr Gabbidon-Lynck’s friend Jason Fraser, 20 was chased, stabbed, and shot by the gang, but he survived.

While his friend was being attacked, Mr Gabbidon-Lynck drove towards the attackers to try to scare them off, prosecutor Oliver Glasgow QC told jurors.

The court heard he became trapped after reversing into parked cars, forcing him to run to a hair salon.

He was stabbed five times and died after an artery was severed.

Mr Glasgow said it was “more reminiscent of a Hollywood film than a winter’s night in north London”.

Mr Gabbidon-Lynck was linked to a North London gang called the WGM, the court heard.

His killers were said to be linked to Tottenham gang the NPK.

Cookhorn was jailed for a minimum of 28 years for murder, attempted murder and possession of a firearm.

Graham will serve at least 25 years for murder and attempted murder.

Lyons, O’Neil-Crichlow and Hamilton, were each jailed for 21 years for murder and wounding with intent.

The defendants has denied all the charges against them.
