Salford murder: Police reassure community

A young man has been tragically killed and our thoughts are with his loved ones at this time. I want to stress that we are at the early stages of our enquiries. We have a team of detectives working to establish the full circumstances that led to his death.

I know residents will be alarmed by this incident, but I want to reassure the community that a thorough investigation is now taking place and there are extra patrols in the area.

I would urge anyone who has information that can assist our enquiries to call us as soon as possible.

– Detective Supt Jon Chadwick, Greater Manchester Police
