Two men have been convicted of killing 21-year-old Matthew Smith in Streatham and robbing his friends.

Jason Campbell, 23, from Groveway, Stockwell was convicted of murder and robbery, while Daniel Springer, 21, was convicted of manslaughter and robbery at the Old Bailey today.

A third man Omar Parchment, 25, was acquitted of murder and robbery.

Mr Smith was found dead after being shot in a car park outside a block flats in Colmer Road and Ellison Road on January 9 last year.

Mr Smith had been sitting with three friends in his blue Volkswagen Golf at about 6.30pm when a silver Toyota Celica drove up with Campbell and Springer inside.

The driver of the Toyota got out of the car pulled out a handgun and tried to rob Mr Smith and his friends.

Mr Smith attempted to drive off, but as he did so one of the group from the Toyota reached the car and fired two shots at close range.

Despite being fatally wounded Mr Smith managed to drive a few metres, before he stopped. He opened the car door and then fell onto a grass verge outside the block of flats.

Campbell and Springer along with others continued to rob Mr Smith's friends of their mobile phones.

A postmortem examination showed Mr Smith had been shot twice, once in the left thigh and once in the chest.

Following today's conviction, Detective Chief Inspector Peter Valentine said: "This verdict reflects a year of excellent, painstaking work by everybody involved. Our thoughts today are with Matthew's parents and I hope the verdict will go some small way to alleviating their loss."

Both men are due to be sentenced on Monday.
