Murder investigation launched after male, 16, stabbed to death
Police were called at 12.46am on Thursday (July 1) to reports of a disturbance at a residential address on Bracken Avenue in Shrublands.
Officers attended and found a 16-year-old male inside the address suffering from stab wounds.
They provided immediate first aid prior to the arrival of the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance.
Despite the efforts of emergency services, the boy was pronounced dead at the scene at 01:34hrs.
Next of kin have been informed while police are awaiting formal identification.
A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.
At this early stage police say they are retaining an open mind concerning motive.
A homicide investigation has been launched, led by Detective Chief Inspector Dave Blair of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command.
He said: “At this early stage we have two active crime scenes, the address where a young man lost his life and in nearby Warren Street where the vehicle believed to have been used by the suspects was abandoned.
“I thank the local community for their patience while my officers gather evidence and urge anyone who witnessed any stage of this horrific series of events to come forward and speak with officers.”
