Third charge over girl shooting

A third man has been charged with the attempted murder of a five-year-old girl and a 35-year-old man following a shooting in south London.

Nathaniel Grant, 20, of Camberwell New Road, Camberwell, south London, was charged in connection with the shooting of Thusha Kamaleswaran and Roshan Selvakumar inside a shop in Stockwell.

Grant will appear at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court, Scotland Yard said.

Two young men have already been charged in the investigation.

Kazeem Kolawoli, 18, of Black Prince Road, Lambeth, and Anthony McCalla, 19, of Oakdale Road, Streatham, were each charged with two counts of attempted murder.

Grant is the sixth person to be arrested in connection with the shooting and the third to be charged with attempted murder.

A 14-year-old boy and a 17-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and bailed pending further inquiries.

Thusha was hit in the chest and Mr Selvakumar received a head wound as two youths hid in the shop after being chased by three others on bicycles through Stockwell.

Police said the girl remains in a serious but stable condition. The man has been discharged and is continuing to receive treatment.

The girl's mother, 12-year-old brother and three-year-old sister were also in the shop during the shooting but were unhurt.
