Police have named the 22-year-old man who died in hospital after being stabbed near Stockwell Underground station during rush hour yesterday evening as Femi Junaid, from Peckham.
Police said they were called at around 5.30pm to reports of a car colliding with a bus near the south London Tube stop, where officers found the victim with stab wounds inside the vehicle.
Scotland Yard said it believed Femi, full name Babafemi, was stabbed in Clapham Road, some 50 yards from the scene of the collision, before getting into his car and colliding with the bus. Police do not believe anyone else was in the car with Femi at the time of the collision.
Scotland Yard said the incident may be linked to an earlier report of disorder on a bus nearby.
The force is now investigating murder and no arrests have been made.
