That looks like black nightshade to me.Solanum nigrum.
Not as toxic as deadly nightshade, but not nice. I would grub it out and get rid.

If you look at the flowers you’ll see that they are similar to tomato and potato plant flowers. This tells me it’s a member of the solanum family, which includes the nightshades. Your plant is Black Nightshade, solanum nigrum.

hi pretty sure this is solanum nigrum sometimes called black nightshade and if so it is a weed - the flowers should look kind of like potato flowers?
