A man has been stabbed to death in Brent after a large fight broke out last night.

The incident happened at 23:26hrs on Thursday, 24 February, near the junction of Review Road and Heather Road, NW2.

Officers and paramedics attended and found a 35-year-old man suffering from stab wounds.

Despite efforts, he was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after midnight.

A murder investigation has been launched.

The man's family has been informed and supported by specialist officers. 

Police arrested three men today, Friday morning, in connection with the incident; they all remain in police custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Dave Whellams, from the Met's Specialist Crime Command, said: "While we are still in the early stages of establishing exactly what happened during this incident, it is clear from the accounts of officers who were first on the scene that there were a significant number of people in the area at the time.

"Someone will have seen what happened and will know what led to this senseless loss of life. They may have been filming on their phone, capturing vital evidence even if they don't know it.

"I would appeal to anyone who knows anything or who has information, no matter how insignificant they think it may be, to come forward."

Anyone with useful information is urged to call the police on 101 with the reference 7991/24FEB or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
