Sasha Johnson: ‘Devastated’ mother calls for witnesses as black equal rights activist remains in critical condition | UK News

The mother of a black equal rights activist who was shot dead at a party in south London last month has appealed for witnesses.

Sasha johnson, 27, remains in critical condition after sustaining “very serious” injuries when four men entered a garden on Consort Road in Peckham and “discharged a gun”.

Ms Johnson’s mother Ellet Dalling spoke on a new Metropolitan Police call and urged those at the party to speak to the police.

“What happened to Sasha devastated us,” Ms. Dalling said.

“She is currently fighting for her life in the hospital with two children who ask where their mom is, what should I tell them?

“Someone must have information about what happened and come forward. Sasha is passionate about standing up for others, please come forward and stand up for Sasha.

“Come help us, I know it’s not always easy, but imagine if it was your daughter or the mother of your children. I think there are people who can help you.”
