Murder investigation launched after Moss Side stabbing

Detectives have launched a murder investigation after a teenager was killed in Moss Side last night.

Just after 4.15pm, police were called to reports of a stabbing on Raby Street, Manchester.

The 17-year-old boy was taken to hospital for treatment but despite the best efforts of emergency services, he died a short time later.

His family have been notified and are being supported by specially trained officers.

A scene remains in place and a section 60 order has been implemented, which grants temporary extended stop and search powers in the areas outlined in the maps in order to aid the investigation.

These powers were implemented yesterday and end at 8.30pm today.

Detective superintendent Simon Moyles said: “This is a tragic and senseless loss of life and our thoughts remain with the victim’s family and friends at this time. They will remain at the forefront of our minds as we move forwards in our investigation to track down the person or persons responsible.

“Whilst no arrests have been made at this time, I want to assure the local community that a visible police presence will be in place in the local area over the coming days for reassurance and to carry out enquiries as we work tirelessly to apprehend those responsible and bring them to justice.

“We are continuing to appeal for any information or relevant footage – including mobile, CCTV, doorbell or dashcam. Any information you have will be treated with the strictest confidence and if you do have information to share, I urge you to do the right thing and report it to police.”

Anyone with any information should contact police on 101 quoting incident number 2280 of 4/4/24. Details can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
