Drive-by gunmen shot 'Black Panther of Oxford' Sasha Johnson in the head as they opened fire on house party.

 A British Black Lives Matter leader took a bullet in the head when a London gang carried out a botched drive-by shooting to assassinate a rival at the end of an all-day party - and she was 'not the intended victim', a friend and fellow anti-racism campaigner said today.

Sasha Johnson, 27, the self-styled 'Black Panther of Oxford' who has called for the police to be defunded after the murder of George Floyd as well as helping lead the 'Rhodes Must Fall' campaign to topple controversial statues, was 'brutally' attacked in Peckham after receiving multiple death threats, her political party said. 

But today family friend Imarn Ayton, founder of the UK Black Reformist Movement, said Sasha, famed for wearing black military uniform at protests including a stab-proof-style vest, was caught up in a dispute between two rival gangs - and was not shot because of her activism.
