Scores of shocked onlookers watched as the horrific attack unfolded on a busy high street in Morden, London, UK.

The shooting took place less than 180 meters from an elementary school, with some witnesses reporting hearing screams after the gunfire broke out.

Rule had been in a relationship with both the victim and Gaudin prior to the attack, but the two men did not know each other, police said.

When Gaudin discovered Rule had seen the other man, he sent him a series of threatening texts.

As a result, the unknowing victim agreed to meet Rule around 2 p.m. on June 22, 2021, believing he would meet her alone to discuss the situation.

But when he arrived at the rendezvous point, without warning, Gaudin opened fire and hit him several times.

After the shooting, the couple fled the scene, but their escape route took them straight back to the scene, where firearms officers who arrived in the area saw and arrested the suspects.

When questioned by detectives, Rule denied knowing that Gaudin had a gun or that he planned to shoot the victim.

But it quickly emerged that she had sent the victim several texts, warning him about Gaudin and even telling him that the victim had a gun.

Rule was sentenced to 30 years in prison, while Gaudin was sentenced to 27 years in prison, with a two-year license extension once released.

Rule was found guilty of attempted murder by a jury after a trial, while Gaudin pled guilty to the same charge at a previous hearing.
