Lambeth shooting victim named as police appeal for information

A man shot dead in south London in the early hours of Saturday has been named as Jazmel Dashourn Patterson-Low.

Police have launched a murder investigation after the 26-year-old was shot in Lambeth.

Medical staff called police at about 2.30am after the man was dropped off at a hospital by car.

He died about half an hour later.

Jazmel was shot on the Westbury Estate in St Rule Street, Lambeth, where a large crowd of around 40 people had gathered.

Police believe an argument flared up resulting in a gun being fired.

A post-mortem examination held on Sunday gave the cause of death as a single gunshot wound.

There have been no arrests, but police said the car has been found and forms part of the ongoing investigation.

Detective Inspector Martin Thorpe, Specialist Crime, said: “Around 40 people had been gathered in and around St Rule Street on Friday evening and the early hours of Saturday morning. A dispute appears to have flared up rapidly after 2am, resulting in shots being fired.

“I am extremely grateful to those who have already come forward to provide information. Along with CCTV and forensic inquiries, this has provided numerous lines of inquiry, which detectives are working around the clock to develop.

“I am certain there are other people who will know what happened in St Rule Street and who was responsible for the shooting. I urge them to come forward and share that information.

“If you don’t want to speak to police, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously. Some people have already done that – I don’t know who they are, but I have their information and I thank them.”

“Jazmel’s family deserve answers. Dedicated police officers, including specialists from across the Met, are determined to do everything we can for them – to bring whoever killed Jazmel to justice, and to protect the community by taking his killer off the streets.

“But we do need even more help from the local community to achieve those crucial aims. If you have crucial information – if you know who fired that gun – please come forward and share that information now.”
