(LONDON) JUST IN: MET MANHUNT: Police are looking for at least three suspects who knocked a 14yr old off his moped and stabbed him seven times in Waltham Forest NE at approx 18:30GMT on Tuesday #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Jan.09: A 14-year-old boy was stabbed at least seven times in the back after being deliberately knocked off his moped as London suffered another murder in 2019: Police are investigating whether the street killing in Waltham Forest, North East London, during rush hour last night was motivated by a row between rival gangs #AceNewsDesk reports

Officers were called shortly before 6.30pm yesterday following reports of a road crash between a moped rider and a car and found the teenager stabbed in the road: Detectives believe three men got out of the car and knifed the victim before returning to it and speeding off. The boy was pronounced dead shortly after 7pm.

The murder is London’s fourth of the year so far after less than ten days of 2019 – and follows 12 months of bloodshed in the capital which saw 134 homicides committed.

The Waltham Forest murder has shocked the local community. Paramedics made a desperate attempt to save the teenager but he died soon after they arrived. 

One local resident, who did not want to be named, told BBC News that crime was getting worse in the area and she was hoping to move away. 

She said: ‘I think it’s ridiculous. Every year, every month, something’s happening – all these killings. I have kids and I don’t see them growing up here.’

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: ‘Despite efforts of paramedics, he was declared dead at 7.09pm. Next of kin have been informed. 

‘At moment that is all the info I have – anyone with evidence or info on tonight’s incident please do call 101.’ 

Then later yesterday evening, Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, tweeted to say: ‘I’m greatly saddened by news of the fatal stabbing of a 14 year old in Waltham Forest, and my thoughts are with his family and friends. 

‘I encourage anyone with information about this horrific incident to contact the Police on 101 or phone Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800555111.’
