London has begun a murder investigation after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed.

London police have opened a murder inquiry after a kid, estimated to be 15 years old, was stabbed.

The kid was treated by police and paramedics at the site before being sent to the hospital, where he died shortly thereafter.

Thursday, just before 9 p.m., officers and paramedics were dispatched to Highbury Fields park in north London, according to New Scotland Yard.

A youngster with stab wounds was discovered. Despite receiving treatment at the scene and being transported to the hospital, he died shortly thereafter.

Albina, a local mother who desired to be identified only by her first name, said to the PA news that her daughter had seen a group of “about 70” adolescents entering the park at around 8 p.m.

The Metropolitan Police stated that a crime scene has been established and that inquiries are proceeding to notify the boy’s family.

A massive police cordon encircles the area, and cops are present.

The cordon is anticipated to remain in place for “a few days,” according to an officer who spoke with a MyLondon reporter at the scene.

There have been no arrests thus far, and the investigation into the attack is ongoing.

The Met’s specialized crime division, which investigates a murder and organized crime, has been notified.

In 2021, thirty adolescents were murdered in the capital.

The amount beats both the previous high of 27 teen homicides in London in 2008 and the previous high of 27 teen homicides in London in 2017.

London had 49 killings between January and June of this year, but the ages of the victims are not mentioned in the Metropolitan Police’s crime statistics dashboard.
