A 15-year-old boy has appeared in court, charged with the fatal shooting of London teenager Shereka Marsh.


The teen, who cannot be named for legal reasons, made his first appearance at Stratford Youth Court today (Monday).

He stands accused of murder and being in possession of a firearm.

Shereka was at a house in Eastway, Hackney, not far from the Olympic Park, on Saturday afternoon, when she was shot in the neck.

Medics tried to resuscitate her but she died at the scene.

Police found a gun, believed to be the murder weapon, inside the house.

The boy has been remanded at a youth detention centre and is scheduled to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Wednesday.

Two 16-years-olds, who were arrested in connection with the shooting, have been released without charge.
