Marcel was stabbed in the chest on September 4 after being chased through St John's Estate in Pitfield Street, Hoxton, London on September 4.

The 17-yr-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 40-year-old woman, who did not want to be named, said she saw the victim being chased before falling to the ground as she watched from her nearby flat.

"There was a big chase," she said. "They ran through the estate, some on bikes, some on foot. By the end of it when he died there were about 15 people around him. I just heard the screams, the cries - a primal scream of death. I could really hear it. I don't know if it was one of his friends who realized that he was dead but it was the most echoing, crying noise"
