The 17-year-old, who has not been named, appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on March 1, and was remanded to appear at the Old Bailey. The date is to be confirmed.

Glendon Spence, 23, from Lewisham was killed after being chased into the Marcus Lipton Youth Centre in Brixton at 6.45pm on Thursday, February 21.

The Metropolitan Police, London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance attended the scene and found the boy suffering from extensive stab wounds. Spence was pronounced dead at 7.27pm.

Another teenager, who has also not been named, was charged with murder and possession of a knife on February 24. The 17-year-old boy appeared at the Old Bailey last Wednesday and trial is set to begin on August 12.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Vandenbergh,  of the Metropolitan Police, said: “Our appeal for information still stands. My officers are piecing together a sequence of events that led up to and immediately followed Glendon’s murder.”

“We know that the incident started outside the youth club and that Glendon was chased into the building and stabbed in what we believe was a premeditated, targeted attack.”
