Rapper Drill Perm has been named online as one of two victims of a fatal crash and shooting in south London.

Two cars were traveling at high speed when one crashed into a moped and several parked cars in Brixton shortly before 8pm on Sunday, the Metropolitan Police said.

A man in his 20s got out of the crashed car and was chased and shot by a gunman in a second car, which then drove off.

The man died at the scene in Railton Road.

The moped driver, who was about 20 years old, died from his injuries.

Police said there was no indication he was targeted.

Dean White, Perm’s father and boxing promoter, posted the following on Instagram: “Rip my boy daddy loves you.”

Heavyweight boxer Dillian White, a close friend of Dean White, whom he promoted, shared the honor.

Deliveroo said: “This is an incredibly tragic incident and our hearts go out to the friends and family of those who lost their lives.

“We are extremely shocked and saddened that such horrific events could happen in one of our local communities and have offered to support the police in any way we can.”

Police say no arrests have been made, but the investigation is ongoing.

Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove said: “I know I share the sentiments of the whole community when I say that I am shocked and saddened by this incident.

“I understand this has caused concern locally and in the wider community and we are already working closely with our partners to provide reassurance and support to residents and others affected.”

A week of violence

Sunday’s death brings to four the total number of people killed in shootings in the capital last week, after a separate incident in Ilford, east London, on Tuesday left two dead and a third injured.

It follows a shooting spree in July that left three men dead in separate attacks over six days.

Prior to these murders, until July 19 this year, there had been no gun deaths in London since October 31, 2021.

In 2021, the Metropolitan Police recorded 12 fatal murders out of a total of 134 murders.

In April, the force said it had seen a drop in gun crime, with all shootings, including fatal and non-fatal, falling from 283 in 2019/20 to 196 in 2021/22.
