A 30-year-old man has died after a double stabbing on a Kennington estate late Saturday evening. 

Police today named the Black Prince Estate murder victim as Jahreau Shepherd. Next-of-kin have been informed, say police.

Shortly after Mr Shepherd was pronounced dead, another man presented at hospital with stab injuries, thought to have been sustained in the same incident.

The second stab victim, aged 26, was suffering with “non life-threatening” injuries. 

The Met’s DCI Dave Whellams urged local people in and around Kennington or the Black Prince Estate, to speak to officers, so justice could be done for the victim’s family.

“A man has lost his life and a family has been left suffering unimaginable grief because of the callous use of a knife to inflict fatal injuries,” said the top homicide cop.

 “Officers who were called to the incident and then paramedics worked to save him, but tragically he died at the scene.

“I will do all I can to get justice for this family, and, along with colleagues from my homicide teams, I will use every available tactic to find whoever is responsible for this terrible attack.

“Our investigation is at an early stage, but we are already building a picture of what happened. 

“I would urge any witnesses who have yet to speak to police to call my officers or contact Crimestoppers anonymously to share what they know.”

There have been no arrests so far. Anyone with information is asked to call 020 8345 3775, or contact Crimestoppers completely anonymously on 0800 555 111.
