Police continue to appeal for witnesses and information after the murder in East Dulwich.
Police were called at approximately 00:10hrs on Saturday 29 January following reports of an assault close to East Dulwich rail station.
Daniel Graham, 18, of Fellbrigg Road SE22, was taken by ambulance to a south London hospital where he was pronounced dead at approximately 02:15hrs.
Police believe that Daniel had attended a party at Dulwich Hamlet football club where an altercation between a group of youths began. As a result he left the party and ran down Dog Kennel Hill SE22 before boarding a stationary Route 176 bus.
It is believed that he was followed onto the bus, so he got off. As he did so he was attacked by up to six youths on the pavement in full view of the passengers and pedestrians on the street. He managed to get back on the bus whereupon passengers called for an ambulance.
A post-mortem gave cause of death as stab wounds – he had been stabbed 24 times.
An incident room has opened under DCI Dave Manning (HSSC), and detectives continue to urge anyone who may have witnessed the attack to come forward.
At approximately 00:20hrs on Saturday 29 January, police were called to a south London hospital to reports of a 14 year old boy who had been shot in the leg. He was treated and later discharged.
