Brockley fight leaves one teen dead and another in hospital

A TEENAGER was killed and another is fighting for his life in hospital after a brawl in a south London.

Police were called to Spalding House, Turnham Road, in Brockley, after neighbours reported a fight had broken out at a block of flats at around 6.15pm last night (Sept 3).

The 17-year-old victim was found by paramedics suffering serious stab wounds and rushed to hospital where he died a short time later.

Witnesses told ITV News the attacker was male, and they saw him run from the scene, dropping his phone.

He is the eighth teenager to be stabbed to death this year in London.

The second boy, also 17, was found bleeding heavily from knife wounds and is in a stable condition in hospital.

Whilst officers believe they know who the deceased is they await formal identification.
However, friends of the victim paid tribute on social media.

“We were like cat and mouse at youth club and now hearing you passed kills me slowly. Rest in perfect peace,” one said.

Scotland Yard has today launched a murder investigation and is appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Any witnesses or anyone with information can call police on-emergency line on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or at crimestoppers-uk.org.
