TORONTO - The Crown says it has abandoned appeals in the acquittals of five people charged in the slaying of Toronto teen Jane Creba.

Creba, 15, was shopping with family on busy Yonge Street when she was caught in the crossfire of a shootout between rival gangs on Boxing Day 2005.

The appeals involved Shaun Thompson, Andre Thompson, Vincent Davis, Andrew Smith, and a young person.

Prosecutors say it was decided, after a careful and thorough review of the cases, not to pursue the appeals.

Jorrell Simpson-Rowe and Jeremiah Valentine were found guilty of second-degree murder in the shootout.

Louis Woodcock and Tyshaun Barnett were found guilty of manslaughter.
