A passer-by who tried to save the life of a teenage shooting victim was ordered at gunpoint to let him die, it was claimed today.

The 19-year-old victim Kyle McDonald, a rapper who performed under the street name Veli Goodfellaz, became the tenth teenage murder victim in London this year when he was shot on the Kambala Estate in Battersea, south London, on Wednesday night.

A woman, who did not give her name but said her son was friends with the victim, said her son had told her that McDonald had been shot by a phone box and staggered through to Coppock Close, where he collapsed.

'I heard someone tried to resuscitate him, but was stopped and they were threatened with a gun,' she said.

She added: 'I think it's a case of mistaken identity. He was a good lad, a good Christian boy. He did a lot of stuff for the church.

'He was with another boy last night. I think it was the other one who was the target.

'When I heard I went to the street where he collapsed. Someone had called his mum and she was there. I was comforting her.'

Kyle, from Fulham, west London, is the fourth teenager to be fatally shot in London this year.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and his mother is said to still be at the hospital where his body was taken.

The woman said Kyle's distraught mother was still at the hospital where his body was taken.

Tributes are pouring in from friends and from the rap community for the teenager, who was a member of the London rap crew Goodfellaz.

Taking to Twitter this morning, former So Solid Crew member MC Harvey, whose real name is Michael Harvey Jr, expressed his sadness at the death of the budding musician.

In a number of posts he wrote: 'He was just a young kid why God why?

'What these youngsters are going through in my community kills me &£65533;&£65533; the worlds just turning savage no love no respect for humanity.'

Fellow members of Goodfellaz also expressed their shock on Twitter.

Skore wrote: 'They Couldn't Feel My Pain Lost My Lil Brother... Thanks 4 Messages But I Just Can't Reply I've Got Nothin To Say...My Little Brothers Dead.'

Police and London Ambulance Service were called shortly after 7.50pm following reports of an injured man. He was pronounced dead at the scene at around 8.15pm.

The teenager's next of kin have been informed and a post-mortem examination will be held later.

Scotland Yard have launched a murder investigation and forensic teams today continued to scour a number of streets on the Kambala Estate, near the notorious Winstanley Estate.

Police said no weapon had been found.

Abdul Kadir said he walked home from the local mosque past where the teenager was shot with his two young children less than hour before the incident.

The 29-year-old said: 'I got back from mosque at around 7.30pm.

'Then after 8pm I saw blue flashing lights and lots of police cars. I went outside to see what was going on and the police told me to stay inside.

'Later I heard a boy had been shot outside the phone box. I couldn't believe it, me and my children were just walking past there less than an hour before.

'It is worrying. My children play outside until quite late sometimes as it's an enclosed area. I hope it's an isolated incident.'

Others who knew the victim also posted messages on Twitter.

Cilla Purple tweeted: 'Realisation of yesterdays reality. Live everyday 2 its fullest. Each day your closer 2 your dream. But everydays also nt promised. RIP KYLE.'

World Boss Kerrie tweeted: '@VeliGoodfellaz I keep on going back to the old times and I wish things were different RIP Kyle ima miss you /3 sending my love to your fam.'

Detective Chief Inspector Matt Bonner, who is leading the murder inquiry, said: 'We retain an open mind regarding the circumstances of the incident and any motive at this early stage.
Police were unavailable to comment on allegations that someone trying to resuscitate the victim was threatened with a gun.

A record number of 29 teenagers were murdered in London in 2008, topping the previous worst toll of 27 in 2007.

However, there was a steep decline to just 15 teenage murders in the capital in 2009.

A total of 19 teenagers were unlawfully killed in London in 2010, while 15 teenagers were murdered in the capital in 2011. Eight teenagers were unlawfully killed in London last year.
