A 17-year-old boy who was killed in an alleged gang feud had earlier Googled “is getting murdered a martyr death”?

Mohamoud Mohamed died in Moss Side, Manchester, last summer after being stabbed in the chest and chased down an alley.

He had been playing football with friends before the tragedy.

Mr Mohamed, said to be a member of the Rusholme Crips gang, was allegedly murdered by members of a rival Moss Side outfit named AO, an abbreviation for Active Only.

Prosecutors claim the feud also led to the murder of Abdul Hafidah, who was stabbed in the neck in Moss Side in 2016, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Daneaco Reid, 19, Jamall Walters, 18, Romeo Daley, 18, and a 17-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons all deny Mr Mohamed’s murder.

At Manchester Crown Court, jurors were told about information police recovered from Mr Mohamed's mobile phone.

In a Google search dated June 24, Mr Mohamed searched “is getting murdered a martyr death”.

In another search on July 5, Mr Mohamed looked up “stabbing Moss Side”.

He died 21 days later.

On Mr Reid’s phone, police recovered a video which featured an “unrolled cannabis spliff” with the pictures of the heads of Mohamoud Mohamed and Abdul Hafidah “digitally superimposed” and rap music being performed over it, the court heard.

Mr Reid's phone had made internet searches for the terms "hunting knife", "rambos" and "rambo knife three days before Mr Mohamed's death, the jury heard.
