A man has died after being found slumped outside a hospital with stab wounds.
Detectives believe the victim, aged around 20, was stabbed to death on Clapham High Street, south-west London, at around 4.45am on Saturday and then driven to King’s College Hospital on Denmark Hill.
Police officers there, dealing with another matter, discovered him seriously injured and administered first aid while calling medics for help, but the man was pronounced dead a short time later.
A 27-year-old man was arrested in Lambeth on Saturday night on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody.
The victim’s family has been informed and is being assisted by specialist officers while formal identification has yet to be arranged.
A post-mortem Sunday at Greenwich morgue revealed stab wounds as the cause of death.
Crime Specialist Detective Inspector Matt Denby said: “As I begin to work with dedicated colleagues and homicide detectives, my thoughts and sympathy go out to this man’s family and friends.
“I can assure you of our full commitment to finding those responsible and bringing them to justice.
“I am appealing to any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police to get in touch with us and share what you have seen or what you know.”
Anyone with information can call 101 and quote the reference 1230/10dec or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
