Teenager stabbed to death in Lon­don

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

PO­LICE are in­ves­ti­gat­ing an­other fa­tal stab­bing in Lon­don as a spate of vi­o­lent crime con­tin­ues.

The vic­tim — be­lieved to be an 18-yearold man — was found with se­ri­ous in­juries in For­est Gate, east Lon­don, yes­ter­day.

Of­fi­cers, paramedics and Lon­don’s Air Am­bu­lance were called to Ch­est­nut Av­enue at around 10.50pm.

The teenager was pro­nounced dead at the scene 30 min­utes later.

It fol­lows the fa­tal stab­bings of two peo­ple in sep­a­rate do­mes­tic in­ci­dents in the cap­i­tal on Sun­day.

Those deaths brought the num­ber of mur­ders in Lon­don so far this year, where the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice have pub­licly re­leased de­tails, to 59.

The most re­cent in­ci­dent has not yet been classed as a sus­pected mur­der.

It also comes af­ter 11 homi­cides in­volv­ing teenagers in Lon­don since the start of this year.

These in­clude the fa­tal shoot­ing of 17-year-old Tane­sha Mel­bourne-Blake ear­lier this month.

The school­girl was shot dead on a res­i­den­tial street on Easter Mon­day.

On the same even­ing, Amaan Shakoor, 16, be­came the youngest mur­der vic­tim of the year so far when he was shot in an at­tack in Waltham­stow.

Eighteen-year-old Is­rael Ogun­sola was stabbed to death in Hack­ney just days later.

Of­fi­cers are still in the process of in­form­ing the vic­tim’s next of kin of last night’s stab­bing, and for­mal iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and a post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion will take place in due course. No ar­rests have been made. A MAN has been found se­ri­ously in­jured in the north of Glas­gow.

Po­lice were called to the in­ci­dent in Pos­sil­park just be­fore 10.30pm yes­ter­day.

The 29-year-old man was found in Bis­land Drive, near its junc­tion with Mary­hill Road. He was taken to Glas­gow Royal In­fir­mary for treat­ment.

Several streets re­mained closed to­day, in­clud­ing parts of Mary­hill Road at its junc­tion with Mary­hill Drive and Ruchill Street.

A Po­lice Scot­land spokes­woman said: “We were called to re­ports of an in­jury in the Pos­sil­park area of Glas­gow on Mon­day night at around 10.30pm.

“Po­lice found a se­ri­ously in­jured man on Bis­land Drive. He was taken to Glas­gow Royal In­fir­mary for treat­ment.

“In­quiries are on­go­ing.”
