Emergency services were called to reports of a man stabbed and unresponsive at Topham House, in Prior Street, at around 9.41pm on Sunday (December 8).

A teenager was pronounced dead 40 minutes later, while his next of kin have been informed.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said, while the force is waiting on formal identification, they can confirm the teenager was Aron Warren - also known as Aron Murray.

He added that a post-mortem examination held at Greenwich Mortuary yesterday gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the chest.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the incident but has since been released with no further action.

Detectives from the force's homicide and major crime command are investigating.

Detective Chief Inspector Larry Smith said: "While we continue to work to piece together the events that led to Aron's murder, I would appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Topham House in Prior Street from around 9:15pm to contact police.

"We believe Aron was attacked inside the flat where he was residing in Topham House so I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who let someone into the building prior to the murder or who saw anyone fleeing the scene."
