Teenager stabbed to death in London
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.”
