Teen fatally stabbed in Kingstanding

A teenage boy has been stabbed in Kingstanding this evening (31 May). Sadly nothing could be done to save him and the 14-year-old has died at the scene.
 
We have immediately launched a murder investigation and have flooded the area with officers to search for the offenders.
 
We understand the teen was attacked on College Road at the junction with Wardour Grove around 7.30pm by up to seven offenders, who ran off towards Chester Road.
 
We are currently speaking to witnesses and fast-tracking CCTV enquiries.
 
Detective Inspector Ranj Sangha, from the force’s homicide unit, said: “This is a shocking and senseless tragedy. Another young life has been taken far too soon.
 
“We have officers with the boy’s family who are facing the cruellest of news this evening. My heart goes out to them.
 
“We will be leaving no stone unturned in our hunt for the callous individuals responsible for this, or for anyone harbouring them, knowing what they have done.”
 
Anyone who can help our investigation should contact us urgently via Live Chat on our website or by calling 101 quoting log 3313 of 31/5. Call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
