June 19, 2018 - 10:22 am

LONDON (AP) — Members of London's street art scene are mourning three graffiti artists who died after being hit by a train.

Flowers and cans of spray paint were left Tuesday outside Loughborough Junction station in south London, near the site of the accident. On social media, friends paid tribute to the trio, who used the tags Kbag, Lover and Trip.

Police say the bodies of three men aged 19, 23 and 23 were found on the rail line Monday morning. They may have been hit during the night, when freight trains use the tracks.

One of the victims was identified by his family as 23-year-old Harrison Scott-Hood. His parents called him "a beautiful artist" and "the love of our life."

The other two men have not been formally identified.
