We are devestated to relay the news that there has been a fatal shooting on the Brixton estates. A young man, Ogarrao Dixon - affectionately known as ‘Gora’, was murdered on Marcella Road on the 17th June.
Police were called at 12.48am to reports of a seriously injured man at Kings College Hospital. Doctors did what they could to save the 24 year old, however Ogarrao was pronounced dead less than hour later at 1.25am.
A post-mortem examination held at Greenwich Mortuary found the cause of death to be a gunshot wound to the chest.
This is a stark reminder of the need for reconciliation in the Brixton area. We are praying for the familiy of the victim and all those who knew him. We also pray for those who committed the crime, that their hearts be opened to peace and transformation. The area of Brixton has such a beautiful diversity of culture and creativity - we pray that there may be unity between different groups.
