Black Lives Matter activist shot at party

A 27 year old,  Black Lives Matter activist Sasha Johnson is currently in critical condition as she was shot by a group of four black men in south London. She was shot in the head on sunday at a party on a property in Peckham.

The Met Commander Alison Heydari said the men had “entered the garden of the property and discharged a firearm”.

Before the incident Ms.Johnson was complaining about how she had been receiving death threats but detectives say that they were not aware of any threats made to Ms.Johnson prior the terrible incident.

It is said that Ms.Johnson had undergone surgery on monday and is in critical care.

The detective who is leading the investigation says that there were 30 guests at the party being held in the back garden of the property.

The detective said the four attackers had been dressed in “dark clothing” and went into the garden “through a side entrance”.

Det Ch Insp Leonard says: “Our investigation continues to make progress but we need the assistance of the community to find out who was responsible for this horrific attack.”

As the investigation is still ongoing it is good for us to keep praying that Ms.Johnson pulls through as a vigil was held on monday afternoon in Ruskin Park close to the hospital where Ms.Johnson is being treated.
