A man has appeared at the Old Bailey charged with the murder of a 16-year-old girl in an east London takeaway.

Agnes Sina-Inakoju was shot through the window of Hoxton Chicken and Pizza, in Hoxton Street, Hackney, on 14 April. She died two days later.

Leon Dunkley, 21, of Hackney, east London, spoke only to confirm his name.

Mr Dunkley, also charged with possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, was remanded in custody. No date has been set for a new hearing.

Agnes, who was shot in the neck, was described as a "charismatic, ambitious, loving and caring girl" by her family.

She had visited Oxford University with friends a week before her death.

A 16-year-old boy arrested in connection with the fatal shooting has been released on bail until June.
