Southwark murder victim named as Shaun Chambers from Lewisham
A MAN who was stabbed to death in Southwark has been formally identified as Shaun Chambers from Lewisham.
The 21-year-old, and another man, were found suffering from stab wounds in Thurlow Street, at the junction of Beaconsfield Road, on the Aylesbury Estate, at about 5pm on Wednesday (September 26).
They were both taken to a south London hospital where Mr Chambers died a short time later.
The other man, aged 18, was treated for his injuries and has since been discharged.
A post-mortem examination gave the cause of Mr Chambers death as a single stab wound to the heart.
Detectives are linking the incident to an earlier one on the same day, when at 4.50pm police were called to Old Kent Road, following reports of a 20-year-old man having been stabbed.

An incident room is open at Sutton under Detective Chief Inspector Amanda Hargreaves from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command (HSCC).
