Four boys who are members of a gang have stabbed a teen to death and one of them recorded him on snapchat as he was dying.
Cemeren Yilmaz, 16, was murdered on the street in Bedford last September by three members of a rival gang (Black Tom) and their cousin.
Yilmaz was said to have been part of their gang, before they had some quarrels and he defected to a rival gang.
The defection had caused rivalry between the “Black Tom” gang and the “London Road” gang.
On the day of the attack, the schoolboy was chased down by the group before being bludgeoned with a hammer and stabbed.
As he bled to death, one of the boys filmed the scene and the footage was shared to Snapchat. Yilmaz, who suffered 50 separate injuries and massive internal damage, died in hospital the following day.
The court heard the stab wound inflicted on Cemeren had travelled almost through his body. He had suffered a fractured skull and brain damage and had gone into cardiac arrest twice.
Jacob Morgan, 15, Ramon Djauna, 15, Caleb Brown, now 16, and Aaron Miller, now 20, who were responsible for his murder were sentenced a few days ago.
Miller, 20, was jailed for a minimum of 21 years. Brown and Djuana were both sentenced to a minimum term of 17 years, and Morgan was sentenced to a minimum of 16 years after being found guilty at St Alban’s Crown Court.
