Supermarket stabbing victim named
Damian Broom
Damian Broom has left a wife and daughter
A man who was stabbed to death following a row in the drinks aisle of a London supermarket has been named by police.

Damian Broom, 23, was in the Tesco store on the A40 near Greenford, west London, when he became involved in an argument.

The married father-of-one ran from the store but was chased by three men and stabbed nearby shortly after 2115 BST on Tuesday.

Police have launched a murder hunt and said on Thursday they were still trying to discover the cause of the argument.

Art Deco store

Mr Broom argued with a white man in the drinks aisle and at customer services of the store before they were joined by a further two men described as "dark European".

All four men were seen to go towards the exit of the store where there was a struggle.

The victim, a warehouseman from nearby East Acton, was chased through Tesco's petrol station and along an exit road but was found stabbed on a mini-roundabout outside the supermarket.

Mr Broom was taken by ambulance to the Central Middlesex Hospital, where he died soon after arrival.

Police said they were unable to say whether the man knew his attackers but said they were keeping an open mind about the killing.

The Tesco store has been built on to the art deco style former Hoover building which is a west London landmark.
