Teenager stabbed to death by gang riding bikes named by police

A teenager who died after he was stabbed by a gang riding bikes has been named by police as Kamali Gabbidon-Lynck.

The 19-year-old was chased into a hairdressers in north London where he was cornered and stabbed on the evening of February 22, the Metropolitan Police said.

Another man, aged 20, was stabbed and shot in the street.

Scotland Yard said officers were called to reports of a group of people fighting on Vincent Road, Wood Green, just before 8.10pm on Friday night.

Police and ambulance crews attended the scene and the two men were taken to hospital.

Their attackers were armed with at least one firearm, knives and a samurai sword, detectives investigating the murder have established.

The teenager was pronounced dead shortly after 3am on Saturday.

The 20-year-old’s condition is no longer life-threatening.

No arrests have been made.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Stancombe, of the Met’s homicide and major crime command, appealed for any witnesses to come forward “for Kamali, for the second victim, and for the safety of your community”.

He said: “I know that there were a lot of people that witnessed at least part of this incident and I know that many of those people will be afraid to come forward and speak with police – I urge those people to make use of the anonymous services available to enable my officers to remove these violent criminals from the area where you live, work or socialise.

“Who are the males on the bikes? Do you know their names? Did you hear shots fired? Even more important, do you have footage of any stage of this tragic incident?”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously via 0800 555 111.
