A murder inquiry is under way after 17-year-old boy was stabbed in Cambridge in which police believe was a “targeted attack”.

Police were called by the ambulance service at 2.52pm this afternoon (Saturday) with reports of a stabbing in the vicinity of Logan’s Meadow.

The teenager was pronounced dead at 2.56pm.

Detective Superintendent Carl Foster, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “While we are unable to confirm the cause of death until a post-mortem examination has been conducted, we believe the boy was stabbed in a targeted attack.


“We are following several leads and carrying out enquiries to find those responsible, however no arrests have yet been made.

“We believe there were members of the public at the scene who spoke with paramedics but left before our officers arrived. I am directly appealing for these people to contact us please.
