Officers and London Ambulance Service attended yesterday’s stabbing but despite their efforts, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
A crime scene remains in place on West Green Road and the man’s next of kin have been informed.
Local residents have been told they will see an increased number of officers patrolling the area.
No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.
It comes just four weeks after student Anas Mezenner, 17, was stabbed to death on West Green Road shortly after 9pm.
Anas Mezenner, 17, was stabbed to death on West Green Road in January
Another boy, also 17, had non life-threatening stab injuries at the time.
A friend said Anas, a keen gamer and Liverpool fan, had been attacked after confronting muggers who stole another friend’s phone.
Anas’s mum said: “He did not deserve this at all. He was a lovely boy.
“He was studying media at the moment, but he wanted to be a pilot.
“He was very academic at school. He got all his GCSEs.”
Five teens aged 14 to 17 have been charged with Anas’ murder and will stand trial on a date to be confirmed.
