Detective Chief Inspector Simon Stancombe of the Homicide and Major Crime Command said: “The investigation into Kamali Gabbidon-Lynck’s death is moving at a pace.

“We know that an attack at Hollywood Green began a chain of events that ultimately ended in murder. The two victims were chased to Vincent Road by males on pedal cycles and a 20-year-old male was stabbed and shot on the street.

"Kamali was chased into a hairdressers where he was cornered by the suspects and attacked, sustaining the knife wounds that would end his life.

"I know that there were a lot of people that witnessed at least part of this incident and I know that many of those people will be afraid to come forward and speak with police – I urge those people to make use of the anonymous services available to enable my officers to remove these violent criminals from the area where you live, work or socialise.

“Who are the males on the bikes? Do you know their names? Did you hear shots fired? Even more important, do you have footage of any stage of this tragic incident? If you do please share it with us by visiting

“Help us identify these suspects, for Kamali, for the second victim, and for the safety of your community.”
