A murder investigation has been launched after a man was fatally stabbed and another injured in an apparent attack at a house in York.

A 19-year-old man, who was found with a "self-inflicted injury" has been arrested in connection with the incident and is currently receiving treatment in hospital, North Yorkshire Police said.

It follows the death of an as-yet unidentified man in hospital after he was found at the address in Hamilton Drive with multiple stab wounds last night.

Detectives are attempting to establish the identity of the man and his connection to the property.

Police attended the scene in Hamilton Drive shortly after 10.20pm last night.

A second man, aged 29, was found injured in the street by a member of the public and has since been discharged from hospital.

Police said they are not seeking anyone else in connection with the alleged murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Matt Walker said: “The incident has caused concern to local people but I would like to offer some reassurance to them that the suspect was quickly arrested at the scene and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

"Our enquiries remain ongoing today and there will be a police presence in the area while we continue to investigate and gather evidence from the scene."

Our thanks go to local people who have been affected, for their patience and understanding while we deal with the incident.

In particular, I would like to express our thanks to the member of the public who came to the aid of one of the victims.
