  • Yihong Peng 30 was booked on murder charges Friday for the fatal stabbing of his mother and critical injury of his father

The 23-year-old was taken to hospital by a friend whom he managed to call after being stabbed in the neck, but died of his injuries later in the evening. "There is a role for all of us - London's public, our partners and the police", she said.

Sarah Castro, of Safer London, a charity working to prevent gang violence, said her staff were "shell-shocked" by the recent violence.

"This is a horrific and distressing incident", Creasy, the member of parliament for the area, said on Facebook appealing for witnesses.

"If we knew, we'd be stopping it", she said.

"She was so young, it's bad".

She added: "She didn't deserve that".

Police and the London Ambulance Service were called to reports of gun fire in Markhouse Road at about 10pm.

According to the Guardian, of the 46 murders in London, 31 were stabbings, four were shootings, three were from multiple injuries, one was by neck compression and seven are waiting to be determined.

It is understood that a 16-year-old and 17-year-old male have been injured.

There have been 10 fatal stabbings in London in the last 19 days, following on from the 80 fatal stabbings recorded in the city previous year.

The monthly murder rate in London has overtaken that of NY for the first time in modern history, according to official figures.

According to the Sunday Times, London's murder rate hasn't exceeded New York's since 1800.

Meanwhile, the number of crimes in total in London have been increasing along with murders. "It's looking like it'll be worse that last year, which was worse than the year before", he told Reuters.

New laws being considered include banning online stores from delivering knives to residential addresses and making it an offence to possess certain weapons in private.
