North Yorkshire Police have identified a man who died during an incident in York on Monday evening as Liam Paul Miller, 20, from Terrington, near Malton.
“We are absolutely devastated by Liam’s untimely death. We cannot put into words the shock and disbelief we feel about what has happened. Liam was just 20 years old and had his whole life ahead of him. He had returned home for the summer from Liverpool University where he was studying graphic design and illustration. We will miss him more than words can say.”
Police say the investigation into Liam's death in Hamilton Drive, in Acomb, is ongoing.
“Liam played in a local band called Nocebo and we are seeking to identify his movements over the weekend of 25th, 26th and Monday 27th July. We are keen to speak to anyone who has been with Liam, either in person or in contact through phone or social media.”
Officers confirmed they are treating an attack on a second victim, a man in his 50s, as attempted murder. The second man is believed to have gone to Liam's before being stabbed.
Police say the second man tried to flag down passing motorists for assistance, and are appealing for those motorists to come forward. They say they specifically want to trace a black car and a white saloon.
A 19-year-old male who was arrested at the scene remains in hospital where he is receiving medical treatment. Police say he will be taken into custody for questioning when he is discharged from hospital.
Further showers are likely to continue through the night with perhaps the odd heavier one around.

A campaign has been launched to make the North East the UK's leading cultural capital.
The 'Case for Culture' manifesto outlines the region's cultural vision for the next 15 years. It says investment in culture will benefit people, places and the economy in the North East, helping to build and sustain a better future for the entire region.
The 'Case for Culture' manifesto has been launched by the North East Culture Partnership, which is formed of 12 local authorities alongside arts and cultural organisations, sport and tourism, and businesses and educational organisations.
The partnership aims to spread the benefits of arts, culture and heritage across the region by reaching an extra 500,000 people per year, boosting economic growth and job creation.
It is hoped the campaign will increase access to culture for young people across the North East.
The partnership says they will achieve their aims by increasing the planned funding from £100 million to at least £300 million over the next five years.
