Sixty first murder victim named as Yusuf Mohamed

The young lad that die in Shepherd’s Bush last night has been name as Yusuf Mohamed, 18, whose family moved to the capital from war-torn Somalia to be “safer“, was knifed in the chest by one of two men who lay in wait outside Intercontinental Foods in Shepherd’s Bush, west London.

His attackers fled following the attack at about 9.20pm yesterday.

Paramedics battled to save his life but he was pronounced dead within minutes.

Yusuf is London’s 61st murder victim of 2019 and the 11th teenager to be killed in a stabbing.

Mr Ulusow said he moved his family to the UK 20 years ago for a “better and safer” life, but told the Standard: “London is so dangerous now. Parents around here are losing children every day.

The police need to catch these people before they kill another boy.”

He said the news was broken to him in a call from a relative.

Mr Ulusow added: “He was studying and dreamed of being an engineer. He was a good family boy, we are heartbroken. He had three brothers and a sister. He was a calm polite boy and never in any trouble. He was a funny guy, He loved doing imitations.

The police need to catch these people before they kill another boy.”

He said the news was broken to him in a call from a relative.

He loved his football and supported Chelsea where he was born. This is beyond belief. I came here 20 years ago for a better, safer life.”

Muhomad Afzal, who has worked the shop for 30 years, said: “Two men were waiting for him over the road like an ambush

The kid was unarmed and put his arms up to say ‘what’s happening’ but one of them stabbed him in the chest.

“He was stabbed in the chest once and fell back in to the shop.”

A witness added: “I don’t know if the fight started somewhere else but he got stabbed outside the shop.

He ran inside for cover and the attacker followed him. The poor boy tried to get down the stairs to the basement but he was stabbed again.

They pulled him back upstairs to the shopfloor and the paramedics worked on him.”
