Kenloy Clarke, 34, of Birkbeck Road, was sentenced at the Old Bailey on July 8.

He pleaded guilty to two count of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent, and two firearms offences in May.

The shooting took place at 9.50pm on September 17 last year, in a takeaway in Lordship Lane.

Janice Watson, 46, and Clarke’s brother, Fitzroy Banton, 31, both went to hospital after suffering gunshot injuries, and although Ms Watson has since been discharged from hospital, her condition was critical for some time.

Clarke was arrested three days later

Det Const Damon Carr said: “I hope that the victims in this can benefit from some closure in knowing that Clarke is behind bars.”

He added the gun used in this crime had never been founded, and the police would appreciate help from anyone who could locate it.
