Police have named the 24-year-old man stabbed to death in Seven Kings last weekend.

At 6.10am on Sunday, November 24, police were called to reports of a fight outside a party at a disused commercial premise in Telegraph Mews, Seven Kings.

On arrival, officers found no sign of any injured individuals – a short while later they were called to Ilford Lane where they discovered Akeem Dylon Barnes suffering from knife wounds.

He was taken to hospital where he died at 12.36pm.

A post-mortem examination conducted at West Ham Mortuary found the cause of death to be a stab wound.

The same day as Akeem’s death, a second man, also aged 24, was brought into an east London hospital with stab injuries.

Officers believe Akeem Dylon Barnes and the second man were both wounded in the fight in Telegraph Mews.

Detective chief inspector John Hughes, said: “We are renewing our appeal for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward. One man is now dead and a second, who is now in a stable condition, could easily have shared the same fate.

“It is vital that we find those responsible for this vicious, and in the case of Dylon, deadly attack.

“I urge those who know the killers not to protect them, help us remove dangerous, violent individuals from your community. If you know who they are, my officers are waiting to speak with you, and anything you tell us will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

There have been no arrests.

Anyone who witnessed this incident or has footage, or anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting 1776/24NOV, tweet @MetCC or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
