VIDEO: CCTV footage shows moment gunman stormed into Cakes and Shakes in Woodford Green

CCTV footage has been released of the moment a gunman burst into a milkshake parlour in Woodford Green, before aiming a handgun at the shop’s owner.

Temidire Owolabi, 21, of Chafford Hundred, Essex, was found guilty at the Old Bailey yesterday of attempted murder and possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life at the Old Bailey.

He wept in the dock and told jurors they would “burn in hell” after being convicted.

The court heard that Owolabi stormed into the Cakes and Shakes milkshake parlour in High Road, Woodford Green, on November 14 and shot James Bryant, 24, in the face with a pistol.

Mr Bryant – who no longer owns the caf� – spent two months in hospital.
