Black Lives Matter activist in UK seriously wounded

A Black Lives Matter activist in the UK has been hospitalized in critical condition after being shot in the head, her political party said early Sunday.

"It is with great sadness that we inform you that our own Sasha Johnson has sustained a gunshot wound to her head," the Taking The Initiative Party said on Facebook.

It added that Johnson, 27, a mother of three, was attacked in the early hours of Sunday following "numerous death threats"

Actively defending black people's rights, she is both a member of the Black Lives Matter movement and the Taking the Initiative Party’s Executive Leadership Committee.

"Let’s all come together and pray for Sasha, pray for her recovery and show our support to her family and loved ones," the party added.
