Jaden Moodie was reportedly riding a stolen moped around Leyton, East London before he was charged by a black B Class Mercedes. He fell to the ground and several people got out of the car and stabbed him before ditching the vehicle on Carlisle Street. Social Media posts emerged of Jaden posing with money and a gold pistol, however his parents firmly deny his affiliation with gangs.
Underworld spoke to Amani Simpson on the situation:
