Reece Young Wiki – Reece Young Bio
Reece Young has been stabbed to death at a vigil being held to remember the victim of another knife attack.
The Met Police said He was killed on Alpha Road in Croydon at about 21:10 BST on Tuesday.
Two men who later arrived at a hospital with stab wounds were subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder.
One of them attacked officers and NHS staff before forcing his way out of the building but was later caught and returned to custody.
He was 23 years old.
One witness heard an argument on the street just minutes before Tuesday’s three stabbings.
The resident said: “There was a huge row… A man was shouting as well but I couldn’t make out what he was saying. It was very violent and aggressive.”
Another local said: “I heard arguing, there was a group of people on the street. We live on a no-through road and groups can’t get out at the end.
“It happened right outside the flat where someone else died a few weeks ago.”
There were three crime scene tents marking the spot in which each man was stabbed.
Forensics officers were scouring for clues and officers were carrying out door-to-door inquiries.

Appealing for information, Det Ch Insp Richard Vandenberghhe said Mr. Young had been found by officers responding to reports of three men fighting and it was believed the stabbing had been “witnessed by a number of people”.
He said: “They had gathered for a small vigil in remembrance of another recent fatal stabbing victim when an altercation began.
“Some of those people have already spoken to police, but I believe there are others who captured images and video of what happened.
“The information they have could prove vital in establishing the chain of events that has led to a young man losing his life.”
Mr. Young’s family has been informed and is being supported by specialist officers.
