Lambeth shooting: Police name man who died after being left outside hospital with gunshot wound | UK News

A man who died after being left outside a hospital with a gunshot wound has been named.

Jazmel Dashourn Patterson-Low, 26, was dropped off at St Thomas’ Hospital in south London by car at around 2.30am on Saturday. He died about half an hour later.

Mr Patterson-Low’s family are being supported by specially-trained officers, the Metropolitan Police said.

He was shot on the Westbury Estate in St Rule Street, Lambeth, where a crowd of around 40 people had gathered.

Police believe an argument “flared up rapidly” and resulted in a gun being fired.

A post-mortem on Sunday gave Mr Patterson-Low’s cause of death as a single gunshot wound.

No arrests have been made but police said a car has been found and is part of the ongoing murder investigation.

They are appealing for anyone who might have information on the shooting to come forward.

Detective Inspector Martin Thorpe, from the Met’s specialist crime command, said: “If you don’t want to speak to police, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously.

“Some people have already done that – I don’t know who they are, but I have their information and I thank them.”

Detective Chief Superintendent Seb Adjei-Addoh, the senior officer responsible for policing Lambeth, said: “Ever since Saturday morning I have remained in contact with local people and partners in Lambeth.

“We are all appalled by the brutal killing of Jazmel and we are working together to protect and support the community.”

“If you have crucial information – if you know who fired that gun – please come forward and share that information now,” he said.
