Today we remember Gabriel Petrov Stoyanove who was killed a month ago during a stabbing in Lewisham.

Gabriel was rushed to hospital after being found injured in Bromley Road at 11.40pm on November 4.

The 21-year-old later died in hospital on the afternoon of November 5.

One of Gabriel’s friends, who wishes to be kept anonymous, said that Gabriel had a “heart of gold” with his whole life ahead of him.

He explained that Gabriel was a “true gentleman”, who was loved by everyone.

He told the News Shopper: “Me and Gabriel were friends, where a large group of us would go to Arsenal games.

“I knew him for five years.

“My favourite memories with him were going to watch football with each other, home and away.

"He was a part of the family at Arsenal and everyone got on with him really well."

Gabriel's friends have since helped to set up a GoFundMe in his name.

On Saturday, November 12, a 16-year-old boy was arrested and subsequently charged with the murder of Gabriel.

Two boys, aged 14 and 17, were charged with murder on Friday, November 11.

They appeared at Bexley Youth Court on the same day.

A 46-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender has been released under investigation.

Anyone with information or any witnesses who are yet to speak with police are asked to call 101, quoting reference CAD 8645/04Nov.
