Man, 25, arrested after fatal shooting of Jazmel Patterson-Low

A 25-year-old man was arrested in the early hours of this morning on suspicion of murder after the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Jazmel Patterson-Low on Saturday.

The suspect remains in custody.

Detective Inspector Martin Thorpe, of the Met’s Specialist Crime department, leading the investigation, 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.”

Mr Patterson-Low died half an hour after a private car dropped him off at St Thomas’ Hospital at around 2.30am.

Police said Mr Patterson-Low was shot at around 2.25am on the Westbury Estate in St Rule Street, where a crowd of about 40 people had gathered.

Cops believe an argument flared up, resulting in a gun being fired.

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

Police said the car has been found and forms part of the ongoing investigation.

DI Thorpe said: “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.”

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

A spokesman for the Met said: “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.”
