A man in his 20s was stabbed to death in Shoot Up Hill in Kilburn yesterday afternoon in a suspected gang-related attack.
Police and ambulance services were called to a tower block in Watling Gardens at 2:43 pm following reports of a man suffering from a stab injury.
The man, believed to be aged in his early 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:06 pm.
Witnesses have reported seeing a man in his early 20s staggering around 50 yards before collapsing on to a grass verge after being attacked by a man with a knife.
The attacker reportedly pulled up in a white car and knifed the victim before jumping in the passengers seat and driving off.
Passers-by, including a nurse, battled to save the man’s life before paramedics arrived on the scene.
The victim, said to be black, is not believed to be a resident of the estate.
