BREAKING: BLM Activist SHOT – 18 -Yr Old Charged

A man has been charged with conspiracy to murder in connection to the shooting of Black Lives Matter activist Sasha Johnson in the head last Sunday.

London Metropolitan Police statement last Friday said that 18-year-old Cameron Deriggs of Bromley Hill in Lewisham was charged with conspiracy to murder. Deriggs was one of the five men arrested connected to the shooting.

BLM Activist Sasha Johnson remains in critical condition after the early morning shooting outside a house party in South London, Sunday morning.

Deriggs has been remanded in custody and will appear at Westminster Magistrate’s Court on May 29th. The other four men arrested have been released on bail until a date in late June.

Met Commander Alison Heydari said of the shooting: “Around 3 am, a group of four black males dressed in dark coloured clothing entered the garden of the property and discharged a firearm. They had left the scene before officers arrived,” in a statement provided to Breitbard London on Tuesday.

Commander Heydari said that the police could not verify claims from Sasha Johnson’s political party, the Taking The Initiative Party (TTIP), that Johnson had received “numerous death threats prior to her shooting.”

The police were “aware of Sasha’s involvement in the Black Lives Matter movement in the UK and understand the concerns this will cause to some communities – however, I wish to stress that at this time, there is nothing to suggest Sasha was a victim of a targeted attack,” Commander Heydari went on to say.

The Met revealed that another man, believed to be in this twenties, was also injured during the attack, suffering a superficial knife wound.
