BIKE TEEN 'SHOT BOY'.

Byline: By STEWART MACLEAN

A TEENAGER crashed his bike into another lad at a park then "lost" their ensuing row - so he returned to gun him down, a court heard.

Jerrell Gourde, 18, is said to have wanted swift revenge as he was left humiliated when the boy of 16 chased him with a brick.

Gourde allegedly called a friend to "bring my thing" to the park.

Minutes later, he rode up to the boy with a sawn-off shotgun, fired and just cycled away, the court was told.

The victim's friend, 16, said: "Everyone was like, 'Leave it, leave it', but he cranked the gun and fired.

He said, 'I hope you're dead'." Amazingly, the boy survived the shooting in Harlesden, North West London, last November.

Brian O'Neill, prosecuting, said: "The boy got the better of Gourde, leaving him embarrassed and angry."

Gourde, of Stonebridge, North West London, denies attempted murder and possession of a shotgun. The Old Bailey trial continues.
