Officers were called to High Cross Leys, at the junction of Huntingdon Street and Woodborough Road, in Nottingham city centre, at around 7.50am on Friday.

Davices Anderson, 22, was treated by paramedics at the scene and was later taken to hospital where he died.

A 53-year-old man and 44-year-old woman were arrested on Sunday on suspicion of murder and four other suspects – two men aged 49 and 39 and two women aged 44 and 33 - were detained on suspicion of assisting an offender.
