Teenager shot dead in the street
A murder inquiry has begun after a teenager was shot dead in a street in south-west London.

Fabian Ricketts, 18, from Mitcham, was found in York Road, Battersea, on Monday night.

He was later pronounced dead in hospital. He had been killed by a single bullet.

There was a big group of youths in the area and police want to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious. One man arrested has since been released.

Operation Trident, which tackles gun crime in the black community, is investigating.

York Road between the junction with Lombard Road and Falcon Road, has reopened following forensic examinations.
