Thugs taunt murder victim’s family by ‘recreating killing on Grand Theft Auto’

Thugs recreated a teen’s murder using a video game and put it online to taunt his family.

A film shared on Instagram and other social media shows 19-year-old Kelvin Odunyi’s killing as if it had happened on multi-million selling game Grand Theft Auto.

Kelvin was shot in the head by a moped gunman outside a cinema in Wood Green, North London, in 2018.

It was thought to be a revenge killing after a 22-year-old was knifed to death weeks before in a turf war.

The GTA video shows moped riders shooting a bystander outside a theatre.

Then a real-sounding 999 call says: “Someone has been shot dead at Hollywood Green cinema, Wood Green” before violent drill rap music is played.

Last night Kelvin’s brother Kai, 25, a business management student, said: “It’s appalling. Kelvin was killed more than two years ago and these people are still bringing it up.

“No-one has ever been arrested for his murder, we want those people responsible to be caught.”

In 2019 Kelvin’s family discovered a drill rap video online boasting about his killing which has been watched 25,000 times.

YouTube, owned by Google, has been accused of profiting from adverts on similar videos.

Some cash goes to video creators, meaning gangs can even profit from their sick taunts.

YouTube says it has a “process for the police to flag videos to us”.

Instagram was approached and asked for a comment.

A spokesman for Facebook – Instagram’s parent company – said: “We removed this post for breaking our rules and have taken steps to prevent others from uploading it.”
