On the later Walthamstow shooting, the spokeswoman confirmed a 16-year-old boy was found with gun shot injuries.

"Despite the best efforts of London Ambulance Service, she was pronounced dead at the scene at 22:43hrs".

Describing the victim as a "good girl", she said: "She didn't deserve that". A 38-year-old woman was stabbed to death in Haringey on Friday and a 23-year-old man was murdered the day before in Greenwich, the Metropolitan police said.

Police said they were called to the hospital just after 8.30pm on Thursday and officers have designated it a crime scene while they examine the vehicle used to transport the victim.

Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy said on Twitter there had been a "serious incident involving (a) shooting and stabbing", adding it was "very distressing".

Police do not know if they are connected at this stage.

As of now, no arrests are made.

A Downing Street spokesman said that the Government's new serious violence strategy will focus on intervention measures meant to "break the cycle" of violent crime.

Interestingly, Met Police commissioner Cressida Dick believes that social media is to blame.

Other friends told how they tried to comfort Tanisha in her last moments, staying by her side after the fatal shooting. Though the methods employed for committing murder may change, like using a knife rather than a gun, the obvious point is that it is people who kill people.
