A GUNMAN who tried to kill an ice cream parlour boss by blasting him in the chest with a pistol is facing years behind bars.

Temidire Owolabi, 21, stormed into Cakes and Shakes in the High Road, Woodford Green , before opening fire on 24-year-old James Bryant.

The victim spent two months in hospital following the attack on November 14 and was lucky to survive.

Owolabi was convicted of attempted murder and possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life after his trial ended at the Old Bailey earlier today (Wednesday).

He wept in the dock as the verdicts were delivered before exploding in a rage, telling the jury they would ‘burn in hell’ and gesturing angrily to the public gallery.

Six security guards were needed to restrain him and one female juror was reduced to tears by his outburst.
