Breaking News: Three men found guilty over shooting that left 5-year-old girl paralysed

Three men have been convicted at the Old Bailey over a shooting in a south London shop which left a five-year-old girl paralysed.

Thusha Kamaleswaran was shot in the chest and Roshan Selvakumar, 35, was shot in the face at Stockwell Food and Wine in Brixton shop last March.

Nathaniel Grant, Kazeem Kolawole and Anthony McCalla were convicted of grievous bodily harm with intent.

The men were also found guilty of the attempted murder of Roshaun Bryan.

The court heard the gunmen were trying to shoot someone else when the two innocent victims got caught in the crossfire.

Prosecutor Edward Brown QC told jurors: “The reality of this shooting may be that, whilst there was an intention to kill the suspected rival gang member, the gunman and his accomplices couldn’t have cared less if someone else was shot too.”

Thusha’s heart stopped twice before doctors were able to save her. She has spent most of the last year in hospital and doctors say she will never walk again.
