Jurors in the trial of the Loxford Park shooting are set to begin their considerations imminently.
The shooting of 22-year-old Rhys Bryin sent shockwaves through the community last August.
Joshan Addison, 19, of Thornton Avenue, Ilford, admits shooting Mr Bryin but says it was in self defence.
The court heard the victim was left requiring emergency surgery after the incident as he attempted to flee the scene and had to be airlifted to hospital.
An 11-year-old boy unconnected with the incident was injured by a stray pellet which grazed his cheek.

Mr Addison is charged with GBH with intent in relation to the shooting of Mr Bryin, and a charge of wounding with intent over the injured 11-year-old.
A teenage Ilford boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and Ali Sheikh, 23, of Buttsbury Road, Ilford, are also on trial, accused of assisting Mr Addison.
