Stratford Stabbing: Murder Investigation Launched As Teenager Fatally Stabbed In East London
Officers were called to reports of a fight in Byford Close, Stratford, at around 6.45pm on Tuesday.
Police and paramedics found a boy with stab injuries who was later pronounced dead at the scene.
Scotland Yard said a murder investigation had been launched, with a post-mortem examination and formal identification to take place.
A local resident, 35, who wanted to remain anonymous said: “I only saw the boy collapse on to the floor, the paramedics arrived straight away. They tried their best for an hour but when they couldn’t save him I saw one of them crying.
“It was very sad.”
She added that the last time a stabbing happened in the local area residents contacted the council asking for more CCTV cameras to be placed.
“But they haven’t done anything since then so I’m guessing they won’t do anything this time,” she said.
One man, a father of three who has lived in the area for 30 years, told the PA news agency: “It used to be a peaceful area but now it’s become a terror to live in.
“I contacted my local councillor yesterday telling him of this brutal murder but, you see, police will come here one day and then leave the next day.”
Another resident, who did not want to give their name, said: “They always hang around this area near that small patch of grass, they moved from Stratford Park and have gathered here.”Teenager fatally stabbed in #Newham Detectives from Specialist Crime investigate.
