A teenage boy has been stabbed to death following a knife attack in east London.
Officers were called to Somerford Grove, in Hackney, on Wednesday evening, Scotland Yard said in a statement.
The victim, thought to be 15 years old, was given first aid by police and paramedics before an air ambulance arrived at the scene.
He was pronounced dead just before 10pm. His next of kin have been informed.
Another teenager, 16, who was found with stab injuries in nearby Shacklewell Road, has been taken to hospital.
But police said his injuries were not life-threatening.
No arrests have been made and the Metropolitan Police has put a Section 60 order in place for the whole of Hackney, which allows officers to stop and search anyone in the area.
The Homicide and Major Crime Command have been informed.
