24 January 2014
Gareth Wilson

THE shooting of a nine- year-old girl caught in the crossfire of gang violence while innocently playing in the garden of a house on Wednesday night has resulted in northern areas residents threatening to turn to mob justice if the situation is not brought under control soon.

Residents have also said that their children are being recruited by gang members to peddle drugs and guns.

Little Samantha Felix was shot shortly after 8pm when two members from the New Kids gang started shooting at rival members of the Nice Time Bozas, commonly known as the NTBs, who were gathered at a house in Leith Road, Helenvale.
