The victim of a fatal shooting in Lambeth has been named and pictured by police for the first time.

Officers were called by medical staff to St Thomas’ Hospital after the man was dropped off by a “private vehicle” at 2.30am on May 11.

Jazmel Dashourn Patterson-Low, 26, from Lambeth, died about half an hour later.

Detectives believe the man was shot on the Westbury Estate in St Rule Street.

His family are being supported by specially trained officers.

His death was confirmed by a post-mortem examination on May 12 and it was determined the fatal injury was from a single gunshot wound.

Reports suggest up that to 40 people gathered in the vicinity when a conflict broke out at around 2am.

No arrests have been made at this stage.

A car has been recovered forms part of the ongoing investigation.

Police are now appealing for further information from the public.

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.

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 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.

“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.”
