A gunman was jailed for life today for shooting a 4x4 driver outside the Ministry of Sound nightclub in London.

Dwayne McPherson was told he would have to serve a minimum of 11 years for attempted murder in August last year.



McPherson, 28, from Sydenham, south-east London, was convicted at the Old Bailey in August of shooting Ranjit Nankani.



The court was told it was a revenge attack after Nankani ran over and killed McPherson's friend Gary Johnson, 25, following an earlier run-in at the club in south London.



Nankani, 30, of Croydon, was found guilty of murder and jailed for life with a minimum term of 18 years.



McPherson was also convicted of a firearms offence and given a concurrent eight-year sentence.



Judge Stephen Kramer told him he had the loaded gun in the crowded club and used it while people were milling about outside.



Nankani was fired at four times and hit in the shoulder once, after he mowed down Mr Johnson.



Judge Kramer told McPherson: "Ranjit Nankani was lucky to escape with only the injury to the shoulder," said Judge Kramer.



"You caused fear to many members of the public. You pose a high risk of danger to the public."
