Gangster who called himself 'the number one hitman' jailed over gun violence


21:11 |

A gangster linked to rap star Giggs was sentenced to six years imprisonment today for shooting a man who owed money.

Taurean Taylor, 26, gave himself the street name Kyser or Kyze after the feared Keyser Soza in the Hollywood film The Usual Suspects.

He described himself as "the number one hitman" for Giggs, whose violent lyrics have been criticised by Operation Trident, the Met unit tackling gun crime in the black community.

Taylor shot Marcus Bennett, known as Meano, who was said to have owed an associate Godfrey Jok, known as Rox, £10,000.

He was hit in the arm and shoulder area as a warning on the Peckham Rye estate in January 2009.

Taylor, who later told friends he had "blazed him in his arm" used a self loading 9mm Glock pistol.
He was said to be part of the Peckham Boys - one of London's most powerful and organised street gangs.

Taylor, of Peckham Rye, was convicted of wounding with intent to cause GBH and possession of the Glock. He will be sentenced later by Judge Paul Worsley.

But he was cleared of the murder of Larry Safie, 25, in a tree-lined avenue in East Dulwich on a Sunday morning in February 2009 and Errol Davis, 24 at the SEOne nightclub near London Bridge in October 2008.

The court heard that while awaiting trial in Belmarsh prison Taylor told girlfriend Alesha White: "They're trying to say I'm his (Giggs) number one hit man. The reality of it Alesha is that they're not far wrong. They know what's going on."

In court he said this was merely a reference to his talent for making hit records.

Today Taylor was sentenced at the Old Bailey to six years imprisonment.

Judge Paul Worsely QC said he had deducted four years from the sentence he would have passed because of the time Taylor has been in prison awaiting trial.

Taylor served 688 days behind bars on the two murder charges - the approximate equivalent of a four year sentence.

He also served 68 days on remand for the wounding charge, which will count towards his release date.

Said the judge: "Judges of this court have repeatedly observed, as I now observe, that gun violence with loaded weapons on the streets of this city has got to stop.

"The only weapon in the armoury of the courts is to pass sentences of such length that the message goes out load and clear to those who commit offences of shooting.
