Photographs have emerged from the aftermath of a fatal stabbing in Croydon where a 22-year-old man was sadly pronounced dead Friday evening (February 5).

They showed emergency first responders including paramedics from London Ambulance Service at the place on Wisbeach Road where the victim was found.

As the Croydon Guardian reported previously, police were called around 8.10pm on Friday night to a home on Wisbeach Road.

Officers and paramedics from London Ambulance Service attended the scene and found the 22-year-old suffering a stab injury.

Despite the best efforts of the emergency services, he was pronounced dead at the scene at 9.09pm.

His next of kin have been informed and a post mortem examination will be scheduled in due course.

Another man was found at the scene an taken to hospital with stab injuries not considered life-threatening.

Police have launched a murder probe into the fatal stabbing.

A spokesperson for the Met said they were not treating the other stabbing incidents that happened in South London on Friday night as connected.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin Thorpe from Specialist Crime said: "We know that a group of males attended the address and an altercation occurred which resulted in the victim receiving a fatal stab injury.

"I would ask any local residents who saw or heard anything shortly after 8pm on Friday evening to contact police; no matter how insignificant you think your information might be, it could help us piece together what happened.

"I am aware that this was one of a number of violent incidents in and around the south London area on Friday evening but there is nothing to connect these incidents together at this time.

"A young man has lost his life in a senseless act of violence, leaving his family devastated. If you can help us find who is responsible for this attack, then I would urge you to get in touch immediately."
