Mahamed was found wounded at the scene. He was taken to a south London hospital where sadly, he was pronounced dead at 2.50am.

A post-mortem examination that took place on Tuesday, April 25 at St George’s Hospital Mortuary gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the abdomen.

The case was investigated by detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, led by Det Ch Insp Graeme Gwyn.

Enquiries established that Mahamed Hassan was chased up Meyrick Road on the night of the murder and stabbed outside Scholey House in Sullivan Close.

As a result of the investigation the four men were arrested and charged.

The judge asked for images of weapons discovered during a search at Young’s house to be released.

Det Insp Domenica Catino of the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command said: “This sentencing will not bring back Mahamed - a young man who should have had a long life ahead of him has been taken from his family; we hope it does however bring them a sense of closure.

“This sentencing should act further act as a deterrent to anyone concerned in carrying knives of the devastating consequences it can have. These four males will now spend the best years of their lives in prison.”
