A murder investigation has been launched after an 18-year-old was stabbed and killed near Crane Park on Tuesday.

Named locally as Jamil Palmer, from Hampton, the teen was a former student at Richmond College, Kingston College and Teddington School, according to his Facebook page.

The incident took place just before 3.30pm in Evans Grove in Feltham.

Police, London Ambulance Service (LAS) and London’s Air Ambulance attended and the man was taken to a central London hospital where he later died.

An LAS spokesman said: “We were called at just before 3.30pm to reports of a stabbing on Evans Grove.

“We sent a responder in a car, an ambulance crew, London air ambulance and a duty officer.

“He was in cardiac arrest and extensive efforts were made to resuscitate him before he was taken to hospital by air.”

A post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course and there have been no arrests at this stage.

A murder investigation was launched by detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command in Putney under Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh.

DCI McHugh said: “I would like to urge anyone who was near Evans Grove, Feltham, between 3pm-3.30pm on Tuesday, May 6, to get in touch with police.

“They may well have seen something which could be of vital importance.

“I would also like to appeal directly to those that have knowledge of this murder to contact police.”

Friends used Twitter and Facebook to pay tribute to Mr Palmer.

Alex Cairns tweeted: “Can’t believe how someone’s life can be taken in that way, R.I.P Jamil palmer !".

Holly Parsons said: “Rip jamil Palmer can’t believe you’ve been taken ! You were such a nice guy and didn’t deserve it! rest in peace”.

Becky Irvin posted on Facebook: “Rip Jamil going to miss you so much”.

Don't like people not being as honest with regards to who he was. This boy chose to walk on the wrong path - from robberies to supplying class A drugs, particularly at illegal raves. I wouldn't call him and his mates a gang but most of them are some sorts of criminals. He and his friends aren't known for armed robberies but I wouldn't be surprised if there were such ones.

Most people like this end up in prison but some end up like this.I wouldn't be surprised if no witnesses come forward but instead they try to sort it out in their own ways, without realising how much easier it would be if only they open their eyes a bit wider and acknowledge such things should be avoided and no revenges are sought.

Sorry for your loss.
