Three Held After Boy Stabbed To Death
Three teenagers have been arrested after a 14-year-old boy was stabbed to death as he got off a bus in south London.
The Metropolitan Police said that Kevin Ssali died in hospital after suffering stab injuries in Burnt Ash Road, Lee, at about 9.45pm on Saturday.
Three males, all believed to be in their mid-to-late teens, have been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Next of kin have been informed of the boy's death, and a post-mortem examination will take place on Monday.
Initial reports suggest the victim was travelling on a route 202 bus through Lee Green, which runs through to Charlton.
Officers are trying to establish if there was some sort of altercation on board the bus which led to the incident.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Dunne said: "I am appealing for anyone who travelled on the route 202 bus on its way through the Lee area just before 9.45pm on Saturday night to speak to my officers.
"Did you witness an altercation or argument involving a group of male youths?
"I would also like to speak to anyone who was in Burnt Ash Road, where the victim got off the bus. I need to know what the series of events were which culminated in a 14-year-old boy losing his life."
