Shai Howes and Oisin Barrett Wiki – Biography

Shai Howes and Oisin Barrett were just 15 years old when they killed Ramarni Crosby in Gloucester in December 2021. Ramarni was stabbed to death after being confronted by a gang of youths armed with a machete, a meat cleaver, and knives. Court orders had prevented the two teens from being publicly identified, but the restrictions were lifted following a media request after they were sentenced for manslaughter at Bristol Crown Court. Howes was sentenced to eight years and nine months in detention, while Barrett received a sentence of seven and a half years. Eight people were originally charged with joint venture murder, whether they had weapons or not. All eight were acquitted of Ramarni’s murder at a trial at Bristol Crown Court in June.

However, Howes and Barrett, both 16, were later convicted of manslaughter along with Levi Cameron, 19, for killing Ramarni. Callum Charles-Quebella, 18, had previously admitted manslaughter. CCTV footage taken from properties in the Barton area of the city shows Ramarni and his four friends running away followed by the teenager who brakes and collapses on Stratton Road, where he dies a short time later. During the trial, the court heard the buildup and the aftermath of the attack was caught on CCTV cameras from nearby houses, but not the stabbing itself. The court heard that the defendants were part of a gang called GL1 and that they wore purple scarves as a sign of membership and that there was constant rivalry with friends of Ramarni.

Two youths who killed teenager pictured for the first time

Ramarni, who was unarmed, beat up one of the gang members before the ‘fierce animals’ attacked him and stabbed him multiple times. After the fatal attack, Cameron, Howes and Barrett fled the scene and took a taxi to a nearby house where CCTV cameras showed them enacting the incident, arms raised and moving downward in stabbing motions.They then ‘celebrated’ the teen’s death after being told he had died, with Cameron ‘jumping for joy’.Handing down the sentence, Judge Cutts said the impact of Ramarni’s death on many lives was “immeasurable”. “The evidence I heard during the course of this trial of young men and boys carrying knives in Gloucester was chilling,” she said. ‘Nothing that happened before even remotely justifies that your group was armed that day. ‘Never before has there been a clearer example of the danger of carrying knives than this case and the death of this young man.’Ramarni had no weapons and he threw a punch and it was that single punch that made some of you act like ferocious animals to pounce on him.

“It is not possible to say who dealt the fatal blow.” The judge ruled that both Cameron and Charles-Quebella were “dangerous” and imposed lengthy prison sentences. Cameron, who was armed with a machete, received a 15 1/2-year sentence comprising 12 1/2 years in prison and a three-year extended leave period. Charles-Quebella, who was “right in front of the attack” armed with a meat cleaver, received an 11 1/2-year sentence comprising 8 1/2 years in prison and a three-year license extension. Neither Howes nor Barrett were carrying weapons, the court heard. Barrett later wrote lyrics to a song glorifying death, and Charles-Quebella created a mock photo of him holding a machete over Ramarni, who was from Frampton-on-Severn, Gloucestershire. Four other defendants, Dean Smith, 20, and three 17-year-olds, were found not guilty of murder and manslaughter. A ninth defendant, Keishaleigh Margrett-Whitter, 20, was acquitted on two counts of aiding a criminal.’
