A man who was stabbed to death in a broad daylight attack in west London has been named as 18-year-old Lance Scott Walker. Neighbours rushed to help the teenager after he was knifed during an incident in Gledwood Gardens, Hayes, shortly before 4pm on Monday (15 August).
Paramedics battled for almost 45 minutes to save his life but he died at the scene.
Metropolitan Police detectives have charged Idris Hassan, 18, of Gledwood Gardens, with Walker's murder. He is due to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on Wednesday 17 August.
Walker attended William Ellis School in Highgate in 2009/10 before going on to study at New River College in Islington, both north London.
One neighbour described the moment he frantically tried to keep Walker alive as he waited for paramedics to arrive. "I got some towels and put pressure on his wounds," Gurdeep Chaggar, 47, told The Sun. "I told my daughters to get towels. I put pressure on the wounds.
"I felt his pulse it was hardly there and within minutes it disappeared ... He was dead before the paramedics arrived.
"I was still there when the paramedics arrived. When you are doing that it seems like forever but in reality it was about five minutes.
"He muttered something to me. It sounded like, something, something 'Bruv'."
He added: "I feel sad for him. I always said hello to him and he would reply, 'Alright bruv'."
