FIFTEEN

don't
die
before
you've
lived

This is 18-year-old Rio McFarlane. He is the fifteenth teenager to be murdered in London this year.

McFarlane - described as a promising footballer - was shot dead in Peckham, South London, on Monday.

His brother Anthony said, "No one had any reason to shoot him. He was just a good, likeable teenager. The whole family is absolutely devastated. We are missing such a bright, vibrant character, a loving character who has been taken from us. He is irreplaceable."

Rio's murder is the first teen death since 16-year-old Ailton Campos de Oliveira was stabbed to death in July.

In 2009, fourteen teenagers were killed.
