Mahamed was found at the scene. He was taken to a south London hospital where he was pronounced dead at 2.50am.
A post-mortem examination 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 the Homicide and Major Crime Command, led by Det Ch Insp Graeme Gwyn.
Inquiries established that Mahamed was chased up Meyrick Road and stabbed outside Scholey House in Sullivan Close.
As a result of the investigation the four teenagers were arrested and charged.
After the court case, Det Insp Domenica Catino, of the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “Today’s verdicts will not bring back Mahamed - a young man who should have had a long life ahead of him has been taken from his family. I hope that today’s verdicts bring a measure of comfort to Mahamed’s family and loved ones.”
A 19-year-old man and an 18-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder as part of the investigation were later released with no further action to be taken.
An 18-year-old man charged with murder is due to stand trial on a date to be confirmed.
