Five quizzed over stabbing murder
A forensics officer attends the scene at Westfield in Stratford, east London, after a man was stabbed to death.
Detectives are questioning five suspects in connection with the murder of a man who was stabbed at a busy shopping centre just yards from the Olympic Park.
The 24-year-old victim, who is yet to be named, was knifed after a fight broke out between a large group of males at Westfield in Stratford, east London, on Thursday afternoon. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
Scotland Yard said two other males suffered minor injuries during the attack, which happened in a busy area of the shopping centre called The Street.
Five men, aged between 20 and 23, have been arrested in connection with the death and are being held in custody.
Detectives have appealed for shoppers or anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward with information.
Acting Detective Chief Inspector Andy Kelly said: "We believe that shoppers at the centre may have filmed or photographed some part of the incident on their mobile phones. We encourage them to come forward and share this potentially vital material with us."
Police said a post-mortem examination on the victim, who is from Stratford, will be arranged. His next of kin have been informed.
A force spokesman said: "Police were called at 4.24pm on Friday June 29 to reports of a fight involving a large group of males in The Street on the ground floor of Westfield, Stratford.
"Officers and London Ambulance Service attended the scene. A man suffering stab wounds, believed aged in his 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene. We understand two other males suffered minor injuries."
A spokesman from the shopping centre said: "Westfield is working closely with the police and emergency services, however as this is a police matter we cannot provide any further details at this stage."
