The tube station was closed last night as police carried out forensic investigations of the crime scene.
Greg Hands, Conservative MP for Chelsea and Fulham, tweeted: ‘This is truly awful – and thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim.’
A Met police spokesperson said: ‘Police were called at 18.42 to reports of a fight between three males in Ackmar Road, Parsons Green.
‘Officers attended along with colleagues from the London Ambulance Service and HEMS.
‘Despite receiving treatment for stab wounds, a man was pronounced dead at the scene.
‘A second male was taken to hospital. His condition is unknown, but is not thought to be life threatening.’
It is the latest fatal stabbing to haunt London’s blood-soaked streets after two people were killed in the capital over the weekend.
On Friday night, 22-year-old Lavaun Witter, known to his friends as Lavz, was stabbed to death not far from Crystal Palace Football Club’s Selhurst Park stadium.
Police were called to five separate stabbing incidents across the city that night.
On Saturday night, Sven Badzak, 22, was fatally stabbed on Willesden Lane in Kilburn at 5.30pm.
Mr Badzak, who was working for his father’s construction company and hoped to study law, had been to a Waitrose supermarket and was waiting outside a bagel shop with a friend when the pair were attacked.
His mother, a former Conservative Party activist, called on the Prime Minister to help ensure her son’s killers are caught.
Jasna Badzak said her son had met Boris Johnson and other well-known Conservative politicians when he was younger, through her campaigning work with the party.
