London (CNN)London police released new details Tuesday about a shooting that left British Black Lives Matter activist Sasha Johnson fighting for her life in hospital, saying Johnson was shot by a group of four men at a party but that it did not appear to be a targeted attack.

"We are aware of Sasha's involvement in the Black Lives Matter movement in the UK and I understand the concern this will cause to some communities -- however I wish to stress that at this time there is nothing to suggest Sasha was the victim of a targeted attack," she said.

Johnson's political party, the Taking the Initiative Party (TTIP), questioned the police's account, saying in a Monday statement that "the irony is in the fact that the police have stated that there is no clear evidence that Sasha was the target of the attack, and that there are no credible death threats made towards her; however, how have the police come to this conclusion without being able to speak with Sasha regarding the death threats and investigate?"

But her friend and fellow activist Chantelle Lunt, who said she has also received numerous death threats for her work as a Black rights activist, says Johnson has been misrepresented by the far-right.
