A man shot dead in Lambeth, south London in the early hours of Saturday morning has been named as 26-year-old Jazmel Dashourn Patterson-Low.

The Met Police said that Jazmel was shot at 2.25am on the Westbury Estate on St Rule Street following a “dispute” that resulted in shots being fired.

Around 40 people had gathered on the estate prior to the shooting, according to police.

After the shooting, Jazmel was taken to St Thomas’ Hospital in a private car but died at 3am.

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

No arrests have been made.

Detective Inspector Martin Thorpe, from the Met’s Specialist Crime unit, said: “I am extremely grateful to those who have already come forward to provide information.

“Along with CCTV and forensic enquiries, this has provided numerous lines of enquiry, 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.”

He added: “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.”

Detective Chief Superintendent Seb Adjei-Addoh, the senior officer responsible for policing Lambeth, said: “Ever since Saturday morning, I have remained in contact with local people and partners in Lambeth. We are all appalled by the brutal killing of Jazmel and we are working together to protect and support the community.

“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.”

Anyone with any information or footage is asked to call police on 101 and give reference 884/11May. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
