Boy, 15, & man, 18, charged with murder after teen, 16, stabbed to death at Croydon home after 'killers knocked on door'

COPS investigating the killing of a teenager who was allegedly knifed after answering a knock at the door have charged two people – including a 15-year-old boy – with murder.

Camron Smith, 16, is believed to have been stabbed when he went to the front door of his home in Croydon just after 12.45am on July 1.


Police and paramedics rushed to the home in Shrublands, but despite their efforts, Camron was pronounced dead at the scene.

His family is being supported by specialist officers.

Last night, detectives investigating his death charged two people with murder and robbery.

One – a 15-year-old boy – was arrested in East Sussex, while the second, Romain La Pierre, 18, of Cricklewood, was arrested in the West Midlands.

Both will appear at Bromley Magistrates' Court today.

Police continue to investigate Camron’s death.

Anyone with information should call the Met Police's incident room on 0208 721 4961.

Speaking after Camron's death, his neighbour Samantha Gail said: “It’s usually a quiet area.

"It’s so sad.

"This is such a friendly area where everyone is polite to each other and there is a real community feel.”

Camron is the 19th teenager to be killed in London this year.

More teens have been killed in the capital in the first six months of this year than in the whole of 2020.
