Scotland Yard say one man has been detained by officers and enquiries continue.
Both injured men were taken to hospital, where one of them died.
Mike Mukuna, pastor at the nearby UCKG help centre, was walking close to the scene in the immediate aftermath of the stabbing.
‘When I arrived it just happened. He was just bleeding on the floor,’ he said.
Mr Mukuna said locals had gathered around to help and had the man in the recovery position.
He could hear people say ‘place your hand on him’ to stop the flow of blood.
‘I could see his breath was getting shallow,’ he said, adding: ‘I saw the blood coming out but because people were around I couldn’t see where it was coming from.’
Mr Mukuna said the emergency services arrived quickly, probably within a minute.
A man who lives in nearby Exbury House, opposite Frampton Food, said: ‘It’s an estate isn’t it? What goes on goes on. It’s like all the estates.’
A woman who lives nearby, and who also did not want to be named, said she saw an air ambulance, adding: ‘I came out of my house moments after it happened.’
She said she thinks the air ambulance landed in a nearby school car park.
The woman recalled that there has been similar incidents in this area in the past.
A red object, which looked like a towel or item of clothing, could be seen lying in the road in front of the tent.
A youth worker who lives nearby, and gave her name as Hannah, said the stabbing victim on Frampton Park Road was around 26 or 27.

She said she went to school with him, adding that he is a ‘decent young man’.
She added: ‘He keeps himself to himself. He’s very pleasant when you see him.
‘It’s got to the point that the kids don’t value lives any more.’
She added: ‘It’s just sad that this couldn’t have been prevented.’
Hannah said anti-social behaviour is common in the area. Dean Saliba, 40, said he witnessed the scene when he arrived at a shop on the street.
‘I turned up after. Someone in the shop said he was stabbed in the back as he ran to escape,’ said Mr Saliba, from Bethnal Green.
‘He was having a seizure when I arrived and there was a lot of blood.’
Another man who lives nearby, but did not want to be named, said: ‘The area is changing. There’s a lot of affluent people have moved in.’
He added: ‘It’s quiet. You feel safe here. It’s a safe area.’
