The death of rapper Lamar Scott was caused by a gang shooting which led to the death of the innocents among which was Guilherme Messias a Silva.
Who is Guilherme Messias De Silva?
Guilherme Messias De Silva was a Deliveroo driver dropping his last takeaway for the day in Brixton, in south London, on a Sunday night. He met with an accident and was thrown off his bike after being struck by a car that was following another vehicle. The boy died on the spot at the age of 21. This whole incident has been believed to be a gangland conflict.
It seemed that the original target of the whole attack was Lamar Scott, a famous rapper from the UK who performs under the stage name Perm. He is also renowned for being the son of prominent boxing promoter Dean Whyte. Lamar Scott was 27 when he became the victim of the attack and died. Guilherme was brutally killed when the rapper abruptly changed the direction of his car in an attempt to jump out and flee from the attackers who kept following him. The vehicle lost control and hit the delivery boy.
Cause of the shooting that killed Guilherme Messias Da Silva:
The main target of the shooting, Perm, was a member of the CT drill group who shared the name with another gang called ClapTown (CT). Claptown controlled the Lambeth area, especially in the Clapham High Road area. The gang happens to be known for having bitter relationships with the other gangs, and the rivalry has been depicted in their music videos on YouTube.
Perm died after releasing his new album called ‘Germs,’ and he promoted the video in Clapham of South London. It is believed that the new album of Perm may have some offending content or that he promoted the video in the Claptown gang’s area may have offended the gang, which led to the attack.
