Three teenagers are being questioned after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed to death near his school.

Zac Olumegbon suffered multiple injuries in what police said was a "planned attack" at Park Campus school, West Norwood, in south London.

Emergency services were called to the school at 0850 BST on Friday but he was pronounced dead in hospital.

Six male teenagers have been arrested. Three have been bailed and three remain in custody, police said.

Ninth fatality

Det Ch Insp John McFarlane, of the Metropolitan Police, said: "Just after 8.50am the 15-year-old victim, who was a pupil, was together with some other pupils.

"A car pulled up with four young black males in it and a confrontation took place.

"The 15-year-old ran away from the school. They followed and sadly he suffered fatal injuries."

A second boy aged 14 was stabbed in the arm after being pursued by the attackers, police added.

A post-mortem examination concluded that the boy died from stab wounds to the chest.

It was the ninth fatal stabbing of a teenager in London in 2010.

The Ofsted website lists Park Campus as a pupil referral unit for boys and girls aged between 11 and 16.

The specialist school educates some of London's most troubled young people, including those with social, behavioural and emotional difficulties.
