A 25-year-old man has been arrested over the shooting of black equal rights activist Sasha Johnson.  The mother-of-two, dubbed the 'Black Panther of Oxford', remains in a critical condition in hospital after being shot in the head at a party in a back garden in Peckham, south London, on Sunday May 23.  On Wednesday, the Metropolitan Police said the man has been detained on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.  So far two other men have been charged over the shooting, while another four remain on police bail.  Devonte Brown, 18, of Southwark, south London, and Cameron Deriggs, also 18, of Lewisham, south-east London, are both accused of conspiracy to murder.  Ms Johnson, a member of the Taking The Initiative Party, was in the back garden of a house in Consort Road, Peckham, when she was shot.   Last week, Ms Johnson's mother Ellet Dalling, appealed for more witnesses, saying: 'What has happened to Sasha has left us devastated.  She is currently fighting for her life in hospital with two children asking where their mummy is, what do I tell them? Someone must have information to what happened and to come forward.  Sasha is passionate about standing up for others, please come forward and stand up for Sasha.  'Come forward to help us, I know it is not always easy but imagine if it was your daughter or the mother of your children. I believe there are people out there that can help.'

Detectives are continuing to appeal for anyone with information to come forward by calling the police on 101 quoting reference 1172/23MAY, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
