A third man has been remanded in custody charged with attempting to murder a five-year-old girl and a man in a shooting at a south London shop.

Nathaniel Grant, 20, of Camberwell New Road, Camberwell, is accused of trying to kill Thusha Kamaleswaran and 35-year-old Roshan Selvakumar.

He is due to appear next at the Old Bailey on 10 June.

Thusha was injured in the chest while Mr Selvakumar suffered a head wound at the shop in Stockwell Road on 29 March.

Police have said the girl remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

Mr Selvakumar has since left hospital but is still being treated for his injuries.

Remanded in custody

Mr Grant is the sixth person to be arrested in connection with the attack.

He was remanded in custody at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court on Saturday.

There was no application for bail during the five-minute hearing.

Kazeem Kolawoli, 18, of Black Prince Road, Lambeth, and Anthony McCalla, 19, of Oakdale Road, Streatham, have already been charged with attempted murder.

Both have been remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on 10 June.

A 17-year-old boy who was arrested on Friday has been bailed until June.

Another 17-year-old has been bailed until later this month, while a boy aged 14 must report back to police in June.
