The Black Lives Matter activist Sasha Johnson is in a critical condition after sustaining a gunshot wound to her head.
The mother of three was put in the critical condition in an incident in south London.
The tragic incident was announced on social media by her affiliated group, Taking the Initiative party.
In a statement on the group’s Facebook page, the party said that the incident happened in the early hours of Sunday and followed “numerous death threats.
The statement said:
“It is with great sadness that we inform you that our own Sasha Johnson has sustained a gunshot wound to her head. She is currently hospitalised and in critical condition. The incident happened in the early hours of this morning, following numerous death threats.
“Sasha has always been actively fighting for black people and the injustices that surround the black community, as well as being both a member of BLM and a member of Taking the Initiative Party’s Executive Leadership Committee. Sasha is also a mother of 3 and a strong, powerful voice for our people and our community.”
A spokesperson said that, while the investigation is at an early stage, there is nothing to suggest it was a targeted attack or that the woman had received any credible threats against her before this incident.
Detectives from the Met’s specialist crime command (Trident) are leading the investigation.
DCI Jimi Tele said:
“This was a shocking incident that has left a young woman with very serious injuries. Our thoughts are with her family who are being provided with support at this terribly difficult time.”
