Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing of a teenager in Cally have named the 18-year-old victim as Kamal Nuur.
Police were called at 8pm last night to North Road after a youth was found suffering from stab injuries.
He was treated by paramedics at the scene but despite their best efforts he was pronounced dead.
According to Scotland Yard, Kamal was chased and attacked in Goodinge Close by two male suspects, who fled towards York Way.
DCI Andy Partridge, from the specialist crime north command, said: “Another senseless knife attack has left a family mourning the loss of their loved one.
“At this early stage we believe that Kamal was chased a short distance and attacked, resulting in him being fatally wounded.
“I am confident there are people out there who would have seen something which could well assist with our investigation.
