A MAN was stabbed to death in North London last night – the capital’s 89th homicide victim this year alone.
Murder cops have launched an investigation after the unnamed victim was found with knife wounds in Camden.
Police and medics rushed to Munster Square, NW1, at around 11:10pm on Monday to reports of a male being stabbed.
Despite efforts to save the victim, he was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
A crime scene was in place overnight as a manhunt was launched to track down the killer.
No arrests have been made and police enquiries are ongoing, Scotland Yard said.
SPATE OF BLOODSHED
A statement added: “Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to call 101 and quote CAD8433/12Aug.”
The murder – the 89th homicide in London in 2019 – comes amid a harrowing spate of bloodshed in the capital.
“Homicide” is the term used to define all unlawful violent crimes resulting in death – including manslaughter.
Last year was London’s bloodiest in a decade – when the number of homicides reached 132.
