“British Black Lives Matter activist Sasha Johnson is in critical condition after being shot in the head in London, her political party said on Sunday. … The [Taking the Initiative Party (TTIP)] said the attack happened ‘following numerous death threats as a result of her activism.’ London’s Metropolitan Police responded to reports of gunfire in southeast London about 3 a.m. local time Sunday morning, it said in a statement. Police said paramedics transported a 27-year-old woman with gunshot wounds to a south London hospital, and that the incident appeared to have happened near a house party in Southwark. The police statement said that at this early stage of investigation there was no evidence to suggest a targeted attack or that the woman ‘had received any credible threats against her prior to this incident.'” (05/24/21)
