Dramatic moment cops take down drugs gang caught on camera brandishing GUN in broad daylight

THIS is the dramatic moment cops took down a gun-toting drug gang after spotting the weapon on CCTV.

An eagle-eyed camera operator saw the barrel glinting as it was handed over between gang members and alerted police.

Heart-stopping bodycam footage shows armed officers swooping on the group after the shotgun was seen in a Birmingham car park.

As police arrive and leap from their cars the trio scatters and runs, but they are eventually arrested and the weapon found hidden nearby.

Darnell Duquesney, 19, had been seen on CCTV getting into a parked BMW just off Rhoose Croft, Castle Vale, and taking a shortened shotgun which he hid inside the leg of his trousers.

CCTV operators zoomed in on what they thought was a drugs deal, before noticing Duquesney putting the gun inside the waistband of his trousers.

CCTV MAN SPOTTED GUN

The BMW left, leaving Duquesney with Jordan Kibuka and Makenzie Blackburn - two other gang members.

As cops arrived he tried to cycle away and, although empty-handed, the gun and cartridges were found behind a wheelie bin in a nearby alleyway.

Kibuka tried to climb over a fence but was arrested with a bag containing Class A drugs.
Blackburn was stopped and found to have a 30cm long combat knife down the front of his trousers, and a smaller lock knife after being detained.

The trio were jailed for a total of 17 years at Birmingham Crown Court yesterday.

Duquesney was jailed for five years and one month and Kibuka, 19, of Castle Vale, was caged for six years and eight months after they admitted to possession of a prohibited weapon.

Blackburn, 20, of Castle Vale, was found guilty of possessing a shortened shotgun and two bladed articles and was jailed for five years and three months.

Detective Constable Brett Stephenson, of West Midlands Police, said: "There is no place for illegal weapons or drugs in our communities and the quick response of officers ensured these are off the streets and the men involved put behind bars."
