A murder investigation has been launched after a man was stabbed multiple times in a Wembley flat.
Police were called to Priestley House in Barnhill Road, at 10.07am on Saturday (September 12).
The victim believed to be aged in his 60s, was pronounced dead at the scene.
His next of kin are in the process of being located and informed.
A Met spokesperson said: “While efforts were made to save the life of the victim, a man who was believed to be the suspect, barricaded himself into an address.
“After a period of negotiation the man refused to comply with officers’ instructions, and Taser was deployed.
“The man, aged 45, was detained safely and arrested on suspicion of murder - he remains in custody.”
