Man killed in Hammersmith, two men arrested

A man was killed in what is reported to have been a fight last night in Hammersmith. The Police have sent me this statement:

Detectives are investigating the death of man who was assaulted in Hammersmith. At around 1940hrs on Friday, 11 March, police were called to reports of a fight in the street in Sulgrave Road, Hammersmith W6.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended the scene.

A man - believed to be aged in his late 20s - was pronounced dead at the scene. We await formal identification and confirmation that next of kin have been informed.

A post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course.


Officers arrested two men in connection with the death. The two men - [A] 31 and [B] 27 - were taken to a west London police station where they remain in custody.

An investigation has been launched by detectives from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command.


Anyone with information that may assist police should call the incident room at Barnes on 020 8247 7821. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

I didn't realise how relevant this post about violence last night would be.
