An 18-year-old black man has appeared in court in connection with the shooting of BLM activist Sasha Johnson.

The 27-year-old was shot in the head during a birthday party last Sunday in Peckham, south London, and remains in hospital in a critical condition.

Five men were arrested in connection with the attack on Wednesday.

Four of the suspects were released on bail on Friday, while Cameron Deriggs was charged with conspiracy to murder.

Deriggs, from Bromley Hill in Lewisham, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Saturday morning, wearing blue jeans and a grey zip-up hoodie.

He did not enter a plea.
