A gunman who told jurors “I hope you die” after they convicted him of attempting to murder a woman was jailed for 16 years today.

Moses Kashita will serve consecutive prison terms of four years and 12 years, backdated to December 31, 2020, when he was first remanded in custody.

Judge Lord Young told Kashita that as part of the extended sentence he would remain under close supervision for three years following his release due to the risk he presents to the public.

The 24-year-old was found guilty last month of shooting Felicia Samuel in a street in Glasgow’s Charing Cross on December 2, 2020.

Prosecutors said he used a pistol or converted replica pistol to carry out the attack.

The attempted murder charge revealed that he struck Ms Samuel on the body to her severe injury, permanent disfigurement and to the danger of her life.

Kashita was found guilty of two charges following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow in June.

As he was taken handcuffed to the cells after the verdict, he hurled foul-mouthed abuse at the jury.

He shouted: “I promise, you have ruined my life. F*** you, f*** you, f*** all of you. I hope you die.”

After Kashita left the courtroom, Lord Young said it was of “regret” what jurors had just heard.

In addition to the murder bid, Kashita was found guilty of attempting to pervert the course of justice by trying to get his victim not to identify him as being responsible.

This resulted in a previous trial being abandoned and a new jury being appointed for the retrial.
