Police are appealing for witnesses and information after the murder of 21 year old Chiswick resident Michael Campbell in Welstead Way on Sunday evening.

Reports that a 'group' of males were arguing and fighting in Welstead Way were received by local police around 10pm.  Two men were taken from the scene to hospital suffering stab wounds. 

Michael Campbell died shortly after arrival and a second victim, also 21 years old, remains in hospital and is said to be in a stable condition.

Four men have were arrested in connection with the incident and taken to separate London police stations. All were later bailed to return on dates in May pending further enquiries.

An incident room has opened at Sutton under DCI Michael Duthie [SCD]. He said: "We are aware there was some sort of altercation between two groups of males (total number about 10) and as a result two males were stabbed; Michael fatally.

This incident may have stemmed from an altercation which took place at about 20.10 that evening at the McDonalds in Chiswick High Road; where a fight took place between a group of 4 males and a female.

We believe that shortly after the stabbing at about 22.10 a group of males made off in two motor vehicles, one being a red Honda civic and the other being a white Nissan Sunny. It is believed the majority of the group were black but there was one white male seen to get into one of the cars. This man is described as white, slim build with short hair and approx 6'5" tall.

We are at this stage trying to piece together exactly what happened that evening and anyone who saw Michael during the evening or witnessed the altercations between the two groups should contact either the incident room or if they wish to remain anonymous contact Crimestoppers."

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that may assist should call the incident room on 020 8721 4155; if you wish to remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
