Tributes for the 18-year-old teenager who was killed in a taxi after a knife attack in which the 16-year-old was injured
TRIBUTE has been poured for a teenager who was stabbed to death in a taxi during a ‘senseless’ rush hour attack.
Jamie Meah, 18, was traveling with a friend when three attackers from another vehicle attacked him.
He was stabbed through the neck, torso and leg.
The other passenger, just 16, also suffered knife wounds after the attack at 5.30pm on Friday in Armley, Leeds.
Jamie ran screaming into a fish and chip shop, where he collapsed in a pool of blood and was revived.
But he tragically died from his injuries.
Honors have now been received for the 18-year-old.
Carol Eaton said on Facebook: “God bless him. My thoughts are with his family. Taken too early. Knife crime needs to be solved.
“So many young people are dying. RIP, little boy. The angels will watch over you xx.”
Maisieleigh Carlton posted two tribute pictures of Jamie and said: “Rest easy still can’t believe you guys are home early Jamie Meah.”
Trudie Canavan added: “Another tragedy. Pointless. Poor boy and poor family.”
While Breon Morton said: “Rest in peace Jamie, such a kind boy all your life. What a terrible world.”
A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and has since been released on police bail pending investigations.
The lead investigator, Detective Chief Inspector Damian Roebuck of the Homicide and Major Investigations Team, asked anyone with information or footage of the attack to come forward.
He added, “If you saw the attack on the victims, have footage of it, or suspects arriving or leaving the scene, please contact the detectives here at the Homicide and Major Inquiry Team.”
