Alim Uddin, 17, died after he went to collect a bike he paid £90 for from the Roupell Park estate in Brixton on Sunday.
His family said they believed the hard-working teenager, who hoped to become a policeman, was “lured” to an eighth-floor flat where he was beaten and stabbed repeatedly.
He was taken to hospital after being found slumped outside a flat on the top floor of Tilford House in Holmewood Gardens, but could not be saved.
Today his mother Parool called for action after he became the third teenager to die violently in London this year: “Our children are being killed and nothing is being done. It happens in broad daylight, every day they are being attacked. They are dying like dogs. It’s making our lives a living hell.” He knifed to death in a row over a second-hand bicycle said today that children were “dying like dogs” in the capital.
Anyone with information can call police on 020 8721 4054, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
A boy aged 16 was arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday and is being held at a south London police station.
