Four teenagers have been arrested after a 17-year-old boy was stabbed to death and another was found with serious injuries in south Manchester.

Officers were called to the scene in Moss Side at about 7.15pm on Sunday. There, emergency services found a 17-year-old boy who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another boy, 16, was found with potentially life-changing injuries close to the scene, said Greater Manchester Police. Three other teenagers – two aged 15 and one aged 17 – also suffered minor injuries during the altercation and presented themselves at hospital a short while later.

Three of the four injured boys are currently in police custody, while another teenager, 17, was arrested yesterday on suspicion of murder. Crime scenes remain in place in the surrounding streets as officers continue their enquiries.

Superintendent Mark Dexter said despite making four arrests officers are still trying to ‘piece together’ the circumstances around the incident.

He said: ‘I would urge anyone who has any information to please get in touch with us as a matter of absolute urgency’.

‘I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the teenager who has tragically lost his life in the most brutal of circumstances,’ added Spt. Dexter.

‘No parent should ever have to bury their child and my heart goes out to the mother and father who lost their son yesterday evening.

‘We also understand that another teenager is in hospital with potentially life-changing injuries, so we would like to wish him well in the hope that he makes a swift recovery.

‘Our focus is to get justice for the bereaved family and for the community as a whole’.

The superintendent said the force has seen ‘lots of love and support’ expressed by the community and thanked all who have provided information to officers.

‘Violence of this kind is unacceptable and it is difficult to digest that another young life has been lost,’ he added.

‘We and the community have been working so hard to reduce knife crime, we obviously all need to do more and we will.

‘The community have helped us in the past and I really hope people will come forward and assist the investigation.’

Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 9283, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
