The gunman and driver, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, were convicted of the murder of Abdul Xasan in a shootout in Coventry on March 13.
Birmingham Crown Court has learned that the 15-year-old is driving a stolen VW Golf Type R. Both suspects were wearing court-ordered RBankle tags at the time of the murder so investigators could link them to the crime scene.

You were convicted of murder after a four week trial and will be sentenced on December 22.
The court heard that the two killers were members of the C2 gang in Coventry, while the victim was linked to a rival gang, RB7. The victim was arrested days before his death on suspicion of possessing a counterfeit firearm.
Chief Detective Inspector Scott Griffiths of the West Midlands Police Homicide Unit led the investigation.
He said: “There was continued tension between the two groups as the murder approached, including gunfire.
“What happened was scandalous: a gun was fired several times in a public street in the afternoon. It happened not far from a nursery. Others who are not linked to any of the gangs could easily have been injured.
“This is a truly tragic case and a stark reminder of the consequences of gang involvement. A young life was lost and the lives of two others, including a small child, were completely ruined.
“We can help people who want to turn their backs on gang culture. Together with our partners, including charities and support groups, we can help young people make better decisions.
“But those who insist on joining violent gangs are at high risk of being seriously injured, killed or spending much of their life in prison.”
