Four people have been charged with murder following the fatal stabbing of a teenager in Prentis Road, Streatham on Thursday.
The Met said, although formal identification is yet to take place, the family of the deceased has been informed and he has been named as 17-year-old Denardo Samuels-Brooks.
A total of 11 arrests in connection with the killing. Officers and paramedics were called to Prentis Road just after 4pm to reports of a stabbing and found a male with a stab wound to the chest.
Denzel Kwatng, 19, of Parkway, New Addington, and Andre Headley, 18, of Prentis Road, will appear in custody at Wimbledon magistrates court tomorrow, Monday 14 June.
The Met said two 16-year-old females had been bailed until a date in late June pending further inquiries.
Four other teenagers – a 15-year-old male, a 16-year-old male, a 17-year-old female and an 18-year-old man have been released under investigation while inquiries continue.
A 17-year-old male, who was arrested on Friday on suspicion of violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon in relation to this incident, remains in custody.
Local MP Bell Ribeiro-Addy said on Twitter: “My thoughts and prayers are with the family of the young man stabbed to death on Streatham High Road this afternoon.
“Arrests have been made and an investigation is ongoing in the area.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
