Sasha Johnson, a Black Lives Matter activist was shot in the head by a group of four men at a south London party.
However, the police has revealed that they believe she was not a victim of a targeted attack
Met Police Commander Alison Heydari has pleaded with the public for information on the shooting.
She noted that “four black males in dark clothing” fired a gun during a party in Peckham.
“From our enquiries so far, we have established that Sasha had been at a party at a house on Consort Road in Peckham early on Sunday morning,” Cdr Heydari said.
“Around 3am a group of four black males dressed in dark coloured clothing entered the garden of the property and discharged a firearm.
“We are aware of Sasha’s involvement in the Black Lives Matter movement in the UK and I understand the concern this will cause to some communities – however, I wish to stress that at this time there is nothing to suggest Sasha was the victim of a targeted attack.
“We are also not aware of any reports of threats made against her prior to this incident.”
