The Metropolitan Police reported that two automobiles were traveling at a high pace when one of the vehicles struck a moped and several parked cars in Brixton just before 8 o’clock on Sunday. A gunman from the second car chased the man in his 20s out of the wrecked automobile, shot Rapper Perm dead, and then drove off. At the scene on Railton Road, the man passed away.
The moped’s rider, who was believed to be a Deliveroo worker in his 20s, passed away as a result of his wounds. Nothing suggests he was a target, according to the police. Boxing promoter and Perm Whyte’s father, Dean, wrote on Instagram, “RIP my baby, daddy loves you.”
The homage was also shared by Dean Whyte’s close buddy and fellow heavyweight boxer Dillian Whyte. Deliveroo expressed its condolences to the surviving loved ones of the fatalities, saying: “This is a terribly unfortunate situation.
We have promised to assist the police in any way we can because we are equally horrified and saddened by the terrible occurrences that can occur in one of our neighborhood neighborhoods.
Despite reports of no arrests, police maintain their investigations are ongoing. “I know I share the feelings of the entire community when I say that I’m surprised and saddened by this tragedy,” Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove said.
Two men dead and a third was injured
I am aware of the worry it will have sparked in the neighborhood and throughout the community, and we are already collaborating with our partners to reassure and help neighbors and those who have been impacted.
Following a separate incident in Ilford, east London, on Tuesday that left two men dead and a third injured, the number of people killed in gunshots in the capital last week now stands at four. In July, three men lost their lives in separate incidents over the course of six days. Prior to these murders, since October 31, 2021, there had not been a single firearm-related fatality in London.
