Police release CCTV in hunt for Walthamstow murder suspects

Police have released CCTV footage of two people they want to talk to after a teenager was stabbed to death on the street on Sunday night.

Paramedics called the police to Walthamstow High Street at around 11.30pm, where they found a teenage boy suffering from a serious stab injury. He was taken to a nearby hospital but died a short while later.

Officers described the attack as 'targeted' and say they believe the suspects had been waiting for Elijah and his friend.

All our enquiries to date lead me to believe that this was a targeted attack and the two suspects were lying in wait in the High Street for Elijah and his friend. I now know that the suspects then left the area on bicycles, cycling north east along the High Street towards Palmerston Road.

I am issuing CCTV images of two people who were in the area earlier that night. It is possible that they live locally and may have been seen in the area of the High Street on their bikes earlier that day, after the attack or in the days before the murder.
