London stabbing: Lambeth college construction student, 18, killed

A construction student was stabbed to death on a London street in one of three killings in just 24 hours - as the murder toll in the capital rises to 59 this year. 

Cheyon Evans, 18, was attacked in Tooting, south west London, at 4.42pm on Friday.  

Mohammed Nadir Dafallah, 18, and a 17-year-old boy have been charged with murder after the attack, Scotland Yard said.

A witness told the Sun: 'I haven't seen that much blood in my life. I kept trying to tell him "stay with me".

'Then he just passed away in front of me.'

Witnesses told the Times that he was set upon by a gang of teenagers and was stabbed up to 17 times. 

Just 12 minutes after Cheyon died, a 19-year-old man was shot to death in Plumstead, south east London.

'The family issue has often contributed to young people being neglected from home as a result of a dysfunctional home.
