Man arrested on suspicion of murder after 60-year-old dies in Manchester | UK news

A 60-year-old man has died following a disturbance in Manchester city centre.

Greater Manchester police (GMP) said a “group of people” were involved in the incident on Dantzic Street, near the Printworks leisure venue, to which officers were called on Saturday at just after 8pm.

A man who was arrested on suspicion of murder at the scene is in custody.

Supt Dave Kehoe from GMP’s serious crime division said: “This was a tragic incident where a 60-year-old has lost his life and our thoughts are with his family and friends who are understandably devastated.

“A cordon is in place and officers are currently at the scene whilst we piece together exactly what happened and who was involved. The area was very busy at the time and a number of people may have seen what happened. Even the smallest information could assist with our investigation.”

Officers are following up a number of lines of inquiry regarding what happened, a police spokesman said.
