Police said the youngster from Forest Gate died in hospital at 10pm yesterday.
The schoolboy was sat with friends when the attacker approached from behind wielding a gun and opened fire in a suspected revenge attack. The second victim suffered "life-changing" injuries and remains in hospital in a stable condition.
Cops are out in force across Newham with full powers to stop and search amid fears of a retaliation attack. Detective Chief Superintendent Dave Whellams, murder investigation, said: “This is a very tragic incident. A teenage boy’s life has been taken in an extreme act of violence leaving his family utterly devastated.
“We are pursuing all lines of inquiry to catch the person responsible for Corey’s murder and are keen to hear from anyone who believes they might have information to come forward as it could prove vital to our investigation.
“Our thoughts are with Corey’s family at this very difficult time."
