A 16-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of a man shot on a busy street in north-west London.

Yasir Beshira, 21, was shot in the abdomen and collapsed in front of shoppers during the evening rush hour on Kilburn High Road on 8 December.

The teenager, who cannot be named because of his age, will appear in Willesden Youth Court later.

Four others were arrested in connection with the shooting. Two men, aged 20 and 22, remain in custody.

A 22-year-old man arrested on 10 December has been bailed until later this month and 17-year-old boy was bailed until a date in March.
