Suspect in Stockwell shooting stabbed
Wednesday 06 April 2011
One of the teenage suspects in the shooting of five-year-old Thusha Kamaleswaran has been stabbed. The 17-year-old is in a "serious but stable" condition under police guard in hospital, sources confirmed.
He was admitted to hospital with stab wounds on Saturday – a day before his arrest on suspicion of the attempted murder of Thusha and 35-year-old Roshan Selvakumar.
Detectives are keeping an "open mind" over the motive for the attack in south London and are building up a "continuity trail" of the attackers' movements before the incident at the Stockwell Food and Wine store.
Thusha was hit in the chest and Mr Selvakumar suffered a head wound as two youths cowered in the shop after being chased by three others through Stockwell. The stabbed teenager is one of four suspects arrested in connection with the double shooting.
