London boxer, 22, shot in the face following training in Dublin

A semi-professional boxer is in a stable but serious condition following an alleged shooting attack.

Oluwafemi Omosuyi had just returned to London from a month-long training regime in Dublin when he was shot in the upper body shortly before 8pm on Saturday evening.

The boxer, better-known as 'Femi', was struck in the face while sitting in his car in Peckham, south London - just outside his mum's house on Wodehouse Avenue.

Pictures have emerged of the attack's aftermath showing police officers at the scene.

A second victim who was also shot suffered superficial injuries in the attack.

Friends of the boxer said he was stabbed last year, allegedly by the same "group" who shot him at the weekend.

Femi's mum, Stella Aledatam, said she wanted justice for her son's attack: "Femi was never involved in gangs and his friends were always nice, these two boys who shot him, I just want them arrested.

"He loved his boxing, he was so happy to be training in Dublin, very happy," she added.
