Ramel Francis, 22, of Station Road, blasted the 22-year-old victim several times after a fight in a bar in Muswell Hill spilled out into the street on November 5 last year.

A bullet hit the victim’s right cheek and lodged in his spine but miraculously he survived.

Last week at the Old Bailey Francis was sentenced to 20 years for attempted murder and 15 years for possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

His sentences will run concurrently.
