POLICE have named the teenager murdered in Erith at the weekend as 18-year-old Faridon Alizada.

The post-mortem examination, which took place yesterday, gave the cause of death as two stab wounds to the chest.

Mr Alizada who was also known as Fighterrr was a member of the IVS gang.

A murder inquiry was launched after police were called to a reported stabbing incident in a third floor flat in Verona House, Waterhead Close in Erith.

When police arrived at 3am on Saturday they found three youths in their mid to late teens suffering from stab wounds.

One of the youths, Mr Alizada, believed to be from the Woolwich area, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other two were taken to the Royal London Hospital.

One youth has since been discharged and one remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

A police spokesman said: "We are investigating the circumstances of the incident and retain an open mind regarding the motive.

"We believe the incident happened following an altercation with a suspect or suspects who then left the flat."

  • Two men aged 31 and 41 have been arrested in connection with the incident and are currently being questioned at a south London police station.
