Acton - teenager will appear in court tomorrow charged with murdering a 17-year-old boy in west London.
The victim, who has yet to be named by police, died of a stab wound to the heart on Friday. He was found near a doctor’s surgery in Crown Street, Acton, just before noon.
Police today charged a boy, 16, over the death. He will appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
A second boy, 17, has been bailed until early next month.
Detectives believe the victim may have been involved in an argument outside a café in Crown Street moments before he was attacked.
Witnesses told how paramedics spent an hour at the roadside battling to save him before he was taken to hospital.
Labour councillor Daniel Crawford said: “This is a tragic loss of life at such a young age.
Police confident they know who Acton murder victim is
“The most distressing part is that this happened close to two schools when children were leaving for the day."
Both Twyford Church of England High School and Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College told the Standard the stab victim was not a pupil at either school.
Anyone with information about the teenager’s death is asked to call police on 020 8721 4868, or phone Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
