My thoughts are with the young man who has had his life brutally taken away from him and our specialist officers are working closely with the family to assist them the best we can at this devastating time.

This is a fast-moving investigation and we have made three early arrests. However, we are keen to establish the circumstances around this and are appealing to the public for further information to assist us with this case.
