An 18-year-old male and a 17-year-old male were arrested in the early hours of Thursday, 29 June. They remain in custody at a police station in south London.

Police were called at 8.18pm on Wednesday, 21 July to reports of an assault close to Brixton Underground Station.

Officers attended and found Shane suffering from a stab injury. They immediately provided first aid.

The London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance also attended but despite their efforts he was pronounced dead at the scene at the 8.45pm

A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. He has since been released with no further action.

The victim has been named as Shane Jerome, who was aged 23 and lived in Thornton Heath. Shane’s family are being supported by specialist officers.

The investigation into the circumstances continue, led by officers in the Met’s Specialist Crime Command.

Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn, leading the investigation, said: “It has been just over a week since Shane tragically lost his life. These arrests mark significant progress with our investigation and I hope it brings some reassurance to both Shane’s family and the wider community that my team are working around the clock to bring justice for his murder.
