First and foremost our thoughts are with the man's loved ones at this time.
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 inquiries to call us as soon as possible.
A 54-year-old man and a woman, 49, were being questioned by detectives on suspicion of murder, Greater Manchester Police said.
A post-mortem examination was carried out last night to establish the cause of death.
