Joshua White Bio- Joshua White Wiki
Joshua White, sent the child in pink roller skates flying as he fled from masked attackers.
Mr White was seen to pause to check on the girl before attempting to take refuge inside a shop in Hackney, east London.
But Theo Momodu, 18, and Taylar Isaac, 20, closed in on him in a pincer movement with David Kerrigan, 20, close behind.
What is happening with @BBCNews? A tragedy occurs in the U.S, where the circumstances are still being investigated, and it’s top line story…..meanwhile on the streets of this country vicious and violent acts are ignored….. https://t.co/2SElunlIHk

Joshua White Age
Joshua White was 29-years-old.
Momodu then stabbed Mr White three times in the back with a 2ft-long red-tinted Zombie sword – a type of blade which often mimics weapons seen in horror films with serrated edges and words etched on to them.
And Isaac delivered a fatal wound to the chest with a large knife, jurors heard. Minutes later, the three alleged young Stokey16 gang members targeted a second man who survived.
It was claimed they carried out the “carefully thought-through expedition” after Momodu received a text message from a senior gang member.
Following an Old Bailey trial, Isaac and Kerrigan were found guilty of murder, a charge which Momodu had admitted to.
All three men, from Hackney, were also convicted of wounding the second victim with intent.
A fourth defendant, Harley McGivern, 20, also from Hackney, was found guilty of perverting the course of justice.
The court had heard how the attack on Mr White happened on the afternoon of April 26, 2019, outside Frampton Foods.
The six-year-old girl, who was unhurt in the incident, had been waiting for her father inside the shop. Police had been alerted by members of the public as the attackers made off in a white Ford car.
Minutes later, Rikkardo Butler was targeted as he walked with his partner, pushing a baby in a pram nearby, jurors heard. He ran away, having suffered superficial stab wounds, the court was told.
The attackers’ car was driven off at high speed, pursued by an armed police vehicle.
The Ford was caught on police dashcam footage crashing into parked vehicles before the men made off on foot, with Kerrigan and Isaac still holding knives.
Two more Zombie blades were recovered from the wreckage. Momodu was apprehended by police, while the others made their way to McGivern’s home, where they changed their clothes.
Kerrigan and Isaac both denied being members of a gang.
Giving evidence, Kerrigan admitted being at the scene of Mr White’s killing, but he said he had been going to buy drugs and knew nothing of the attack plan.
