The man who fatally stabbed the brother of Grammy award-winning rapper 21 Savage in a South East London housing estate has been sentenced to ten years in jail.
Tyrece Fuller, 22 from Kennington was found guilty of the manslaughter of Terrell Davis-Emmons, 27, following a week-and-a-half long trial at Inner London Crown Court.
The court heard that CCTV captured the attack on Terrell, which happened on the evening of 22 November 2020.
Terrell is seen on CCTV approaching Tyrece and hugging him near Ramilles Close, Brixton Hill. An altercation then broke out between the two, in which both men brandish knives at each other, before a third man separates them.
Both men put their knives away, and appeared to be walking in opposite directions.
However, shortly before 6pm, CCTV captured Tyrece pulling out a six-inch knife and stabbing Terrell once in the chest before running away.
Police officers and paramedics rushed to the scene, arriving within minutes, but could not save Terrell’s life. He was pronounced dead at 6:39pm.
Tyrece had previously told the court he owed Terrell £800 in gambling debt and that the 27-year-old had threatened him.
Terrell’s brother Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, more widely known as rapper 21 Savage, posted an emotional Instagram post about the loss of his brother.
Detective Chief Inspector Kate Kieran, who led the investigation, said: “I would firstly like to say my thoughts are with Terrell’s family as they continue to come to terms with the tragic events of the past year.
“The events of November 22 clearly demonstrate the dangers of carrying a knife. The Met will continue to clamp down on violence in all its forms so we see no more young men losing their lives on our streets.”
Tyrece Fuller was sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment for manslaughter and three years for possession of an offensive weapon, to run concurrently.
