The Major Crime Unit has launched a murder investigation following an incident in Langley yesterday (5 May).

At around 7.15pm, police officers attended Trelawney Avenue following a report that a man had been stabbed in the vicinity of the parade of shops.

They found the victim, an 18-year-old man from Slough, with stab wounds being assisted by a member of the public.

The victim was taken to St Mary’s Hospital in London for further treatment but he sadly died later.

Senior investigating officer Detective Superintendent Kevin Brown, head of the Major Crime Unit, said: “We have launched a murder investigation after a young man was fatally stabbed.

“His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers. Our thoughts remain with them at this most difficult time.

“We are in the very early stages of this investigation and we are dealing with a very complex enquiry, which appears to be a targeted attack.

“I would ask anyone who may have information about this to please come forward and call 101, quoting reference 2010 of yesterday’s date.

“A scene watch is likely to be in place for some time, which is likely to have an impact on local residents and business owners, and so I would like to thank them in advance for their patience and understanding.

“Members of the public are likely to see an increased police presence while we continue to investigate and we would advise anyone with any concerns to please speak to one of our uniformed officers.”
