London: 'Around 100' Combatants Turn Neighborhood Into War Zone

A London neighborhood was plunged into chaos when dozens of suspects engaged in a vicious battle that left a teen dead and at least one more critically wounded over the weekend, according to reports.

The shocking episode unfolded at around midnight on Saturday in Tower Hamlets, a culturally-enriched borough in the East End of the British capital.

Authorities were alerted about a mob of "around 100 people fighting in a residential street in Bow, some armed with knives and machetes," GB News reports.

Responding officers found two young males suffering from stab wounds at the scene.

Both were rushed to hospital by emergency services.

Shea Gordon, 17, succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead just before 2 a.m.

The second victim remains "critically ill," according to the latest available updates.

The mass brawl may have been sparked when a group was refused entry to a nearby house party, according to Metropolitan Police.

One 18-year-old suspect was arrested on Monday afternoon.

"An arrest has been made and our investigation  is continuing at pace. Shea's family have our assurances that we will do everything we possibly can to bring them justice and support them following their terrible loss," said Detective Chief Inspector Mark Rogers.

“I am aware of reports saying that about a hundred people, armed with weapons were involved. While I would stress that our investigation is in its very early stages, this information does not appear to be wholly accurate. We know a significant number of people were caught up in this incident but not necessarily directly involved or armed with weapons.”
