A teenager stabbed to death on a south London housing estate has been named as drill rapper JaySav.

Identified only as John, he was just 16 years old and friends said he belonged to a local gang called LTH, Lower Tulse Hill.

He made rap music videos in which he and others bragged about their exploits including cheffing people – stabbing enemies.

One of his friends said: John was in a gang, he had enemies. They did things – you know like gang stuff.

Whoever did this, they were not targeting John – they rolled up on his gang. John must have been on his own and thats why they targeted him.

He was stabbed five times, in the heart and in the stomach. John was the youngest of three in his family, he was fun, he had a lot of banter.

Everyone in the area knew him as a fun guy.

A witness recounted the moment John was attacked.

The woman who lived on the Tulse Hill estate said: A car drove onto the estate and then the boy was left laying on the floor.

I was absolutely terrified – his stomach had been slit open. The boys mum came driving down in an Audi and sounded the horn again and again.

She was screaming “save him, save him, God save my boy”.

The death toll in London has reached 119 following JaySavs death. Other friends described him as bubbly and having manners.

Police were called to reports of a shooting in Greenleaf Close at 10.53pm. Paramedics tried to save the teenager, but he was pronounced dead at 11.41pm.

Officers believe the boy had suffered stab wounds and said there is no evidence that a gun was fired.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Vandenbergh said: We believe the victim was attacked by a number of suspects and the altercation would have undoubtedly drawn the attention of those who were in the vicinity.

The boy was laying down. He looked like an angel, like he was sleeping, Mrs Wedderburn said on Tuesday morning.

I just feel sorry for the mum. The mums screams, I cant get out of my head. Its awful. Imagine being a mother seeing that.

The neighbour saw a black car driving off. A big black Audi, I think, she said.

Mrs Wedderburn, who has lived in a flat in Greenleaf Close for decades, lamented the recent spate of violence and killings in south London, saying it had not always been that way.

When I was growing up in the 70s, if there was a fist fight, that was it. There was no knives.

All youre doing is upsetting families. If you saw the mum and dad, it was heartbreaking.

She added that the victims mother had been to the flats before to pick up her son as she did not like him hanging around there.

One of the boys friends, who had dinner with him on the evening he was killed, said: He was bubbly. He was the friendly type. He was respectful. He had manners.

Two other girls said John was stabbed five times in his heart and in his stomach as he was leaving a friends house.

The friends said John, an aspiring rapper, was associated with the LTH (Lower Tulse Hill) gang and went to school at Park Campus in West Norwood.

They did not know who attacked him, but did not believe it was a targeted stabbing.

Another friend, who lives at the estate and did not want to be named, also thought he heard a gunshot before he looked out of the window and saw the commotion.

Growing up around here, you become used to it. You can tell the difference between a gunshot and a firework, he said.

I heard a person say, “We got him, we got him”.

He said it took about 20 minutes for emergency crews to arrive.

I lost a friend, he said. If they had come sooner my friend would still be alive.
