A 13-year-old boy has been arrested over a shooting in south London, near to where a man was stabbed to death.

Daniel Graham, 18, was repeatedly stabbed near East Dulwich station, after being thrown out of an 18th birthday celebration on Saturday.

A 14-year-old was shot in the leg in a clash in the car park of a nearby supermarket.

The teenager was held on Monday morning and is being questioned on suspicion of attempted murder.

The violence started during a birthday party at Dulwich Hamlet FC and police have linked the attacks.

Witnesses said up to 70 young men were thrown out of the clubhouse and the party was shut down early.

Victim chased

Police and paramedics called to Melbourne Grove shortly after midnight found Mr Thompson-Graham, of Peckham Rye, with stab wounds.

He was taken to King's College Hospital but died two hours later.

An eyewitness said he was chased by up to 15 young men before he was attacked.

Also shortly after midnight, a 14-year-old boy arrived at the same hospital with a gunshot wound. He remains in hospital in a stable condition.

Mr Graham was the fourth teenager to be murdered in the capital this month.

Councillor James Barber, who represents East Dulwich for Southwark Council, said local people had previously been worried about the safety of the car park where the shooting took place.

"Any large, unsupervised area is of concern for people to get up to criminality," he said.

"The Sainsbury's car park is very large.

"They've reduced their opening hours from midnight to 10pm, which I completely understand, but it has left a very large unsupervised area in the neighbourhood."
