Nine

don't
die
before
you've
lived

Another death. 17-year-old Kelvin Chibueze was stabbed to death in Ilford, east London, in the early hours of Monday.

Chibueze is the ninth London teenager to die violently this year. It is alleged he was a member of the Dagenham Boys gang, and friends with 17-year-old Olukorede Fajinmi, who was stabbed in the heart last year.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative government is closing projects designed to prevent young people joining gangs, The Guardian reports.

Note: Don't Die Before You've Lived is a series of ongoing entries recording the murders of teenagers in London. Although not necessarily GBLT-related, the desperately premature loss of these young boys deserves our full attention. Please remember the names and faces you see here, and spare a thought for kids who really did die before they lived.
