A teenager who was allegedly murdered had Googled the phrase 'is getting murdered a martyr death' before he died, a jury heard.

Mohamoud Mohamed, 17, said to be a member of the Rusholme Crips gang, was allegedly murdered by members of a rival Moss Side outfit named AO, an abbreviation for Active Only.

Prosecutors allege Mr Mohamed was killed in Moss Side last summer as part of a gangland dispute between the rival street gangs.

They say the feud between the two gangs was also behind the murder of Abdul Hafidah, who was stabbed in the neck in Moss Side in 2016.

Daneaco Reid, 19; Jamall Walters, 18; Romeo Daley, 18; and a 17-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons, all deny murder.

Jurors have previously heard that Mr Mohamed, who had been spoken to by members of GMP's anti-gang XCalibre Taskforce but refused to engage, had been playing football with friends before the incident.

Mr Mohamed was stabbed in the chest before being attacked again after being pursued into an alleyway, prosecutors say.

They allege the defendants are affiliated with the AO gang, a rival of the Rusholme Crips.
