A man knifed to death at a Grove Park chicken shop has been named by police.

Police were called just before midnight on Friday to a fight in Downham Way. Officers attended and found two men suffering stab and head injuries.

Both were taken to hospital where one of the men died on Saturday morning.

That man has now been formally identified as 34-year-old Omar Smith, from Lewisham.

Omar was not a worker at the chicken shop.

A special post-mortem examination held on Sunday at Greenwich Mortuary proved inconclusive and police are currently awaiting the results of further tests.

The second man injured, aged, 51, was released from hospital following treatment and was arrested on suspicion of GBH.

Two other men aged 40, and 46, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of GBH.

All three were further arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to south London police stations.

The 40-year-old has now been released under investigation while the other two have been bailed to a date in mid-October.

Detectives from the Specialist Crime Command have been informed and will be investigating working closely with police in Lewisham.
