Lankan girl, London’s youngest gun crime victim:

Police arrest teen over shooting

A 19-year-old is being questioned over the gang shooting of five-year-old Thusha Kamaleswaran. Thusha along with shopkeeper Roshan Selvakumar, were innocent bystanders caught up in crime war crossfire inside a Stockwell shop.

The two victims - both originally from Sri Lanka - were left critically injured after the attack on Tuesday.

The man is being questioned at a south London police station as more officers were drafted in around Stockwell Food and Wine store, with sources saying up to 50 gangs were operating in the immediate vicinity. Police arrested the 19-year-old after one of the teenagers targeted by gangsters who accidentally shot Thusha came out of hiding to help find the gun attackers.

Thusha’s parents are maintaining vigil by her hospital bed while detectives try to build up a picture of the attackers’ movements.

She remains in a ‘critical but stable’ condition after opening her eyes for the first time since the attack yesterday.
