Arrest made as Lambeth murder investigation continues

Detectives investigating the fatal shooting of a man in Lambeth have made an arrest.

A 25-year-old man was arrested in south London in the early hours of Tuesday, 14 May on suspicion of murder of 26-year-old Jazmel Patterson-Low – he remains in custody.

Detective Inspector Martin Thorpe, Specialist Crime, leads the investigation and said:

“This arrest demonstrates that our investigation is making progress but I am still appealing to any witnesses or anyone with information to get in contact.

“We know there was a group of around 40 people 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.

“Several people have come forward to provide information and I am extremely grateful to them. However, 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.”

An investigation was launched after medical staff called police at around 02:30hrs on Saturday, 11 May. They reported that the victim, suffering a gunshot injury, had been dropped off at St Thomas’ Hospital in a private car.

Despite the best efforts of medical staff, the man sadly died shortly after 03:00hrs. He has been named as Jazmel Patterson-Low, 26, of Lambeth. His family are being supported by specially trained officers.

Jazmel was shot at around 02:25hs that morning on the Westbury Estate in St Rule Street SW8. A post-mortem examination was held on Sunday, 12 May. It gave cause of death as a single gunshot wound.

Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command are leading the murder investigation.

Anyone with any information or footage is asked to call police on 101 and give reference 884/11May. Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
