Police in London are looking for four people in connection with the shooting of a British activist Sasha JohnsonAccording to the BBC report, who was admitted to the hospital in critical condition.
London Metropolitan Police Commander Alison Heydrich told the news network that Johnson was at a party in south London when a group of men “entered the property’s garden and dropped a shotgun.” The suspects were described as four black men dressed in black who fled before police arrived.
People who knew Johnson said he had received death threats, although police say they do not think it was a targeted attack. Hedri said detectives “were not aware of any reports of threats made against him prior to this incident.”
Johnson, 27, who was shot in the early hours of Sunday morning, is a prominent voice in Black Lives Matter and anti-racism protests in the United Kingdom. She is best known as the leader of the Black British political movement Taking the Initiative Party (TTIP).
However, the TTIP questioned the police investigation because officers did not get a chance to talk to Johnson about the threats.
“Ironically, police have said that there is no clear evidence that Sasha was the target of the attack, and that no credible death threats were made against him,” the group said. In a statement on Instagram. However, how did the police come to this conclusion without talking to Sasha about the death threats and the investigation?
The statement continued, “Do the police know who the target of the attack was, to conclude that Sasha was not.” “How does one manage to accidentally shoot someone in the head?
still, imran ayton, a friend of Johnson, told the bbc that he did not believe that Johnson was “the intended victim” and that “as far as I know … the incident is more related to rival gangs than to his activism.”
