Appeal one-week on from Stockwell murder

Detectives investigating a fatal shooting in Lambeth will return to the scene one-week on from the murder as they continue to appeal for witnesses and information.

At 20:57hrs on Sunday, 12 September, police were alerted by the London Ambulance Service to reports of a shooting in Ferrey Mews, SW9.

Officers attended with paramedics and found 27-year-old Chino Johnson suffering gunshot injuries.

Despite the efforts of the emergency services, Chino was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

On the evening of Sunday, 19 September from around 20:00hrs, officers will be in the area around Ferrey Mews to conduct their appeal.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Leonard, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command who leads the investigation, said:

“It is one week since Chino was fatally injured as a result of this shooting, which will have understandably caused shock and concern in the local community.

“Those responsible need to be identified and held to account for their actions and I would appeal to anyone who has information that could assist, no matter how small or insignificant they think this is, to contact my team in confidence.

“If you do not wish to speak to police, you can also provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers.”

Initial enquiries suggest that shortly before 21:00hrs, two suspects on a moped rode into Ferrey Mews where they opened fire on a group of people socialising outside, fatally wounding Chino and injuring two other women.

Those women, aged 26 and 29, received hospital treatment before being discharged.

The pair then fled on the moped in the direction of Bennett Road and Dora Way.

The moped is described as light coloured – either white or silver – with a large black square box mounted on the rear and an L plate hanging down. It is believed to be either a Yamaha NX or a model that looks similar.

Anyone with footage that could assist can upload it via the following link here.
