Abdirashid Mohamoud from Brentford, was stabbed to death by a masked man in West London on 22 March 2019.

The 17 year old was found covered in blood at the scene after a fight broke out outside a block of flats. A post-mortem examination established that Abdirashid died from stab injuries.

Eye witnesses said Abdirashid was in Syon Park, close to the flats with a group of other people.

A vehicle pulled up and a group of males got out. They chased and caught up with Abdirashid in Union Lane, Iselworth, where he was stabbed. His attackers fled the scene in a tinted sports car.

Police Officers found the teen suffering from stab wounds and gave him first aid until the paramedics arrived.

However the teenager was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. Police launched a murder probe following the death of the teenager shortly after 10.30pm.

An investigation into the murder took place, led by detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command supported by colleagues from the West Area Command Unit.
