A murder investigation has been launched after a man was stabbed to death in broad daylight in London.
Cops found the man suffering with stab injuries after he had taken refuge at a residential address in Bermondsey.
The 23-year-old victim was taken to a South London hospital in a critical condition and where medics fought for more than four hours to save him – but he was pronounced dead at 11.20am today.
An investigation has been launched by detectives from Homicide and Major Crime Command.
Detective Inspector Ian Titterrell, who is leading the investigation, said: “At this early stage, we believe an altercation involving a group of males began outside Helen Taylor House in Linsey Street.
“The victim then took shelter at an address on Lucey Way after being attacked.
“We know there were a large number of people in the vicinity at the time of the attack and I am appealing for anyone with information to get in touch. Any information will be treated with the strictest of confidence.”
