Abdullah Amouri is now behind bars for manslaughter

A killer who fled to Marbella after a drive-by shooting of a rival drug dealer has been jailed for 15 years.

Abdullah Amouri, 22, drove gunman Denny De Silva, 23, to Wembley, where he blasted Romario Green, 20, in the chest with a shotgun at close range.

De Silva and Amouri fled to Spain after the 2015 shooting, prompting an international manhunt.

The former was caught first in Malaga, and jailed for a minimum of 27 years for murder last year.

Amouri initially eluded police, only being extradited from Spain on a European Arrest Warrant on March 18 of this year.

A previous trial had taken place for murder in September 2016, but jurors were unable to reach a verdict.

As a result, Amouri admitted the lesser charge of manslaughter and possession of a shotgun.

Judge Mark Lucraft QC jailed Amouri for 15 years.

Amouri, of no fixed abode, admitted manslaughter and possession of a prohibited firearm and was jailed for 15 years.

De Silva, of Westbourne Park Road, Ladbroke Grove, was convicted of murder and jailed for 27 years in February last year.
