0 11

A man who died following a fight in a chicken shop in south-east London has been named as Omar Smith.


The 34-year-old died in hospital on Saturday after police were called just before midnight on Friday to the shop in Downham Way, Grove Park

They found two men suffering stab and head injuries. Both were taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service.

The second man, aged 51, was released from hospital following treatment and was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

Three people were arrested on suspicion of murder on Saturday.

Two other men, aged 40 and 46, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

But all three were then further arrested on suspicion of murder on Saturday and were being questioned by police. 

Two have been bailed to a date in mid-October while the third has been released under investigation. 

A special post-mortem examination held on Sunday, 15 September at Greenwich Mortuary proved inconclusive and we await the results of further tests.

Enquiries into the full circumstances continue, the Met Police have said.

A man who lives across the road from the crime scene told the Standard: “I heard shouting but you always hear shouting here.

“I didn’t take much notice. Something happened there [at the shop] a month ago.

“Police have still got it cordoned off. There must have been about 25 officers there last night, the whole road was shut down.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting CAD 9560 of September 13. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
