A 21-year-old woman, who Tanesha told Sky News that she was"just chilling with her friends" when she was shot from a car for "no reason at all."
She went on: "The car just pulled up and just started shooting."
Another friend of the slain teen said: "Tanesha was a very well known, very lovable little girl in the community, she was not involved in any sort of problems with anyone.
"I can't believe she's gone. She was just an innocent child caught up in this stupid postcode war."
