The latesy victim of London’s violent crime has been names as 22 year old Oluwafemi Omosuyi
The semi-professional boxer, known as Femi, had ‘half his face blown off’ as he sat in a car with friends, his mum revealed.
He had recently come back from training in Dublin when he was gunned down in a Ford Focus outside Oliver Goldsmith Primary in Peckham, south London.
Damilola Taylor, who was stabbed to death aged ten in 2000, used to attend the school.
Appealing for witnesses, Stella Aladetam, 53, said her son had emergency surgery after the attack on Saturday evening. Yesterday he was in stable condition.
‘They shot him through the window in the face,’ she said. ‘He also was hit in the arm and the hand.’
She revealed her son was stabbed last year. ‘It is the same people — two black boys — who stabbed him the other time,’ Ms Aladetam said, adding: ‘Femi was never involved in gangs.’
But a friend, who did not want to be named, said: ‘He got into the wrong crowd.’
Promising boxer Femi, who trained at the All Stars Boxing Gym in West London, had just returned from a month long training camp in Dublin.
Stella added: “He loved boxing. He wanted to be professional. He would train twice a week, and every Saturday.
“His coach told him to stay home and out of trouble.”

In social media posts the gym described him as “explosive” and a “promising heavyweight” star.
It was the latest weekend of bloodshed on London’s streets last night, with police also called to a stabbing in South East London.
A man, believed to be in his 40s, suffered multiple stab wounds in Claremont Street, Greenwich, just before 7pm on Saturday.
He was taken to a South London hospital for treatment.
Police confirmed they had found the man badly injured, with London Ambulance Service also called to the scene.
In a statement, police said: “The injured man – believed to be aged in his forties – was taken by LAS to a south London hospital.
“A crime scene is in place. No arrests have been made. Enquiries continue. ”
The victim’s current condition is unknown.
Police also launched an attempted murder investigation after a 22-year-old man was found suffering from multiple stab wounds in Shadwell on Friday.
One man, aged 23, has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and taken to an east London police station for questioning. Enquiries are ongoing.
DC Megan Bushell from Tower Hamlets CID said:“We have made one arrest and continue to build a picture the attack which unfolded.
“I would appeal to anyone who saw a confrontation in the area before the attack and anyone who witnessed people running from the scene after the stabbing to come forward.
“Your information could prove vital to our investigation.”
Police were called to Creek Road, Greenwich – just yards away from Saturday’s stabbing incident – after a man was found collapsed near a Sainsbury’s shortly after 8pm on Thursday.
