Detective Inspector Chris Wood, Specialist Crime (Homicide) is investigating. He said: “Arrests have been made and we continue to follow a number of leads following this tragic loss of a young life. Terrell’s family are distraught and we are providing them with support via specially trained officers as they begin to grieve for him.
“The key to this lies in the community, and although some residents have spoken to us, I am certain that there are others with vital information who we are yet to speak with. I would urge them to contact us as soon as possible.
“Police and communities must work together to combat violent crime. If you are concerned about telling us what you know, or would not usually interact with the police, I can assure you that anything you tell us would be in the strictest confidence.”
BCU Commander for Southwark and Lambeth, Colin Wingrove, said: “This is a horrific incident and our thoughts are with the victim’s family, who have lost a loved one in such tragic circumstances.
“Our Specialist Crime colleagues are investigating this terrible incident and locally we are providing every support.
“I want to reassure local residents that there will be an increased policing presence in the area over the coming days.
“We must work together to remove violent offenders and knives from the streets and in doing so make our communities safer. I would urge anyone who has information they would like to share to approach the officers in the area or call 101.”
Information can also be passed anonymously via Crimestoppers 0800 555 111. Any witnesses or those with information are asked to call 101 quoting CAD 5428/22Nov.
