The “devastated” mother of black equal rights activist Sasha Johnson has appealed for witnesses to her shooting to come forward. 

Sasha Johnson, 27, remain in a critical condition in Kings College Hospital, having suffered “very serious” injuries when four black men entered a garden on Consort Road and “discharged a firearm.”

Ellet Dalling has spoken out as part of a renewed Met appeal, asking attendees of the party to speak to police.

News Shopper:

She said: “What has happened to Sasha has left us devastated.

“She is currently fighting for her life in hospital with two children asking where their mummy is, what do I tell them?

“Someone must have information to what happened and to come forward.

“Sasha is passionate about standing up for others, please come forward and stand up for Sasha.

“Come forward to help us, I know it is not always easy but imagine if it was your daughter or the mother of your children.

“I believe there are people out there that can help.”

A man in his 20s also suffered a superficial knife wound as violence erupted.

Five men were arrested on May 26 in connection with the incident, four of whom were released on bail until a date in late June.

Enquiries to establish a motive are ongoing, but police say there is nothing to suggest that Ms Johnson was the subject of a targeted attack.

The Taking the Initiative Party (TTIP), of which Ms Johnson was a prominent member, has criticised the Met, claiming they are not in position to know whether she received death threats without having spoken to her.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Leonard, said: “Yesterday marked two weeks since Sasha Johnson was shot.

"Although we have made a number of arrests, I am continuing to appeal to anyone who is yet to come forward to please speak with officers.

"I would also urge those who were at the party to make contact and tell us what you know.

"It is vital that we gather as much information as possible to establish what happened in the early hours of that Sunday morning and why.

“Sasha remains in a critical condition, and her family has been left devastated by what has happened.

"We are in regular contact with them, and quite rightly, they have a lot of questions that are currently unanswered.

"You can help us to provide them with the answers they desperately need.

“Were you in the vicinity of Consort Road, or did you see anyone fleeing the area? Please do the right thing and call us, or Crimestoppers.”
