Police are hunting two murder suspects after a 20-year-old man was shot and stabbed in Peckham on Tuesday night.

Officers were called at to reports of shots fired in East Surrey Grove at 10.30pm, where they found the victim in a critical condition.

First Aid was administered before the London Ambulance Service arrived on the scene and took the man to a central London hospital.

He was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at 11.30pm after sustaining fatal gunshot and stab wounds.

Officers believe they know who the victim is and have informed the family, though no formal identification has yet taken place.

No arrests have been made at this stage and a date for the post-mortem examination is still to be decided.

Detective Chief Inspector Will Reynolds of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, who is leading the investigation, said: “At this early stage we believe that the victim was making his way into the estate by pedal cycle when he was confronted by two people who have shot him, stabbed him and left the scene on foot toward Sumner Road via a cut through from Cator Road.

“We know that local residents heard the shots and we are keen to speak with anyone who either witnessed the incident itself or saw the suspects fleeing the scene.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 0208 721 4205 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
