A fifth man has been charged with murder and conspiracy to rob in connection with the death of a 22-year-old man in Bromley last Sunday (July 13).

Shyheim Green, 19, address unknown, will appear in custody at Bromley Magistrates’ Court today (July 19).

Green joins Lance Slowley, 22, and Vishal Deowram, 18, both of Thornton Heath; Marcus El-Alfy, 18, of Bromley; and Jordache Smith-Challis, 19, of West Norwood who have all been remanded in custody following their appearance before Bromley Magistrates’ Court.

New court dates have yet to be determined.

Afyon Saint-Hilaire of Bromley died from stab wounds following an incident outside McDonalds restaurant at around 8.45pm.

The 22-year-old victim is believed to have attempted to drive away after the incident in Coniston Road, but crashed and collapsed from his injuries.

Paramedics battled to save him and he was given emergency surgery at the scene but had been too severely wounded during the incident.

A post mortem examination at Princess Royal University Hospital on Monday revealed Saint-Hilaire died from shock and massive blood loss.

Friends and family have paid tribute to him on social media sites.

Additionally, Mickyle Bromfield, 23, of no fixed abode, appeared at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on July 15, charged with possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

He has been remanded in custody to appear at Croydon Crown Court on July 29.
