Dillian Whyte shares Instagram post of close friend’s son believed to be killed in Brixton shooting

Boxer Dillian Whyte has shared a post on Instagram from a friend whose son is believed to be the victim of a shooting in Brixton last night.

Two men were killed in a collision and shooting in Railton Road – a Deliveroo driver named locally as 21-year-old Guilherme Messias da Silva and a Drill rapper named online as Perm.

Dean Whyte, who is a close friend of professional boxer Dillian Whyte who grew up in Brixton, London and fought at Miguel’s Boxing Gym, posted a picture of Perm on Instagram with the message: “R.i.p my boy daddy loves u. Life has changed forever.”

Dillian Whyte then reposted the same message.

The posts came as more details emerged about the double killing in Brixton.

The Met confirmed Mr da Silva, died as a result of a collision with one of two cars involved in a chase in Railton Road at around 7.50pm.

After the crash, a man believed to be the Drill rapper Perm got out of one of the vehicles and was chased by a man from the other car who was armed with a gun.

The man running away was shot and died at the scene. The gunman returned to his car and left the scene.

A number of roads in the area remain closed and crime scenes are in place. The Met said post-mortems will be held in due course.

There have been no arrests so far and enquiries continue.

    Its his brother’s son as in his nephew, you’d think you would no that from the fact they have the same sir name and are both in to boxing. But your dumb reporters couldn’t ever guess it, let alone do the slightest research to see dean and dillian real brothers. But since the mail wrote the same thing i suppose you just got your info from there.
