A GIRL of five was last night fighting for life after being shot by a gang of boys as young as 13.
Thusha Kamaleswaran was hit in the chest at a shop in South London.
ITS an all too familiar story of crazed young thugs letting rip with guns in a vicious turf war.
But the latest battle on our city streets has ended with a girl of five clinging to life, an innocent victim of the mindless violence.
Thusha Kamaleswaran was blasted in the chest by teenage gunmen on bicycles, some as young as 13, as her mum watched on in horror.
She is believed to be the youngest ever victim of gun crime in England.
A 35-year-old shopkeeper, named only as Seela, was shot in the head during the same terrifying attack on a family-run off licence. He is said to have a bullet lodged in his brain.
The tragedy lays bare the dangers of David Camerons police cuts as critics fear frontline officers will be sacrificed to save cash.
Thusha was hit after three masked yobs aged 13 to 17 on bikes chased two other youths into the shop and unleashed a volley of shots with a silver handgun.
A bullet ripped through her chest, missing her heart and lungs by millimetres. Witnesses told of the horror. Kirubakaran Nantheesparan said: There was so much blood. It was everywhere. The girl was lying on the ground and the mum ran over to her. She screamed, Call the police.
The girl was on the ground, not saying anything. She was flat on one side. My friend was shot too. He was shot in the nose, he was my friend.
