FURTHER details have emerged about the fatal stabbing of a young man following a fight at The Mall in Ealing yesterday (Tuesday).
After being hurt in Ealing Broadway the man and two friends - one of whom suffered non-life threatening injuries - escaped in a blue car at about 3.15pm and drove to Acton where they pulled over in front of an ambulance in Gunnersbury Lane, near the junction with Uxbridge Road.
A witness who asked not to be named, said: "I think they knew he was bad and they panicked. I think he was already dead when they pulled him out of the car and put him down in front of the ambulance. They were crying and shouting. One had a stab wound on his back. He was on his knees, sobbing and shaking his friend and shouting his name.
"The paramedics and police worked on the man on the floor for a long time, at least half an hour but there was no sign of life."
Drinkers enjoying a pint in the nearby Red Lion and Pineapple were stunned as they watched the scene from the beer garden.
One who asked not to be named, said: "I'd never seen so many police in one place. There was about five ambulances and six or seven police cars. You could see a large patch of red on the other injured man's back. He was being held back by his friend he was telling him to let the paramedics do their job."
The injured men, both white and in their 20s, were taken to hospital where the most seriously hurt victim was pronounced dead.
Police have launched a murder investigation and took away the car for forensics tests.
There have been no arrests.
Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
