It's believed he and Dylon both received their injuries during the incident at Telegraph Mews.
Homicide detectives from the Met's Specialist Crime Command now lead the investigation.
Detective Chief Inspector John Hughes said: "We are renewing our appeal for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
"One man is now dead and a second, who is now in a stable condition, could easily have shared the same fate.
"It is vital that we find those responsible for this vicious, and in the case of Dylon, deadly attack.
"I urge those who know the killers not to protect them, help us remove dangerous, violent individuals from your community.
"If you know who they are, my officers are waiting to speak with you, and anything you tell us will be treated in the strictest confidence."
There have been no arrests.
Witnesses and anyone who has footage or information are asked to call police on 101 quoting 1776/24NOV, tweet @MetCC or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
