Michael Dosunmu
Detectives say Michael was shot with a machine gun
Two men have been charged with the murder of schoolboy Michael Dosunmu who was shot dead in his bedroom.

Michael, 15, was fatally injured in his home in Peckham, south-east London, on 6 February.

Mohammed Sannoh, 18, and Abdi Omar Noor, 21, both of no fixed address, will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday.

Four other males, aged between 16 and 23, are currently on police bail pending further inquiries.

Michael's older sister Shakira was also at home when he was shot.

She gave her brother first aid and he was able to say a few words to her, but died in hospital less than an hour later.

Michael was a regular at the Celestial Church of Christ, in nearby Bird In Bush Road, and attended Archbishop Michael Ramsey Technology College in Camberwell.
