Police have named the 18 year old teenager murdered in the street in old Trafford.
A murder investigation is under way after Kieran Crump Raiswell was attacked by a lone knifeman.
It’s thought the teenager was completely innocent when he was attacked as he walked in Old Trafford yesterday.
A police spokesman said they don’t know the motive for the attack in Upper Chorlton Road at about 2.20pm.
The victim, was spotted by Greater Manchester Fire as they were on their way back from a job.
The crew pulled over and tried to save the teenager but he later died in hospital.
Rob Moore, president of Sale Sports Club, said on Twitter: "Devastated to hear of the untimely death of Kieran Crump Raiswell at just 18 years, a former Sale cricketer whom I coached for many years."
Chief superintendent Jim Liggett, divisional commander for Trafford, said: "Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the relatives and friends of this young man.
"I cannot begin to imagine what they are going through and specially trained officers are offering them whatever support we can.
"We are still very much in the early stages of this investigation and all we know for certain is that this young man has been attacked in broad daylight as he walked along the street.
"We are looking for one offender but the area would have been extremely busy so I would ask anyone who witnessed this to come forward."
A post-mortem examination will take place this afternoon. A stretch of Upper Chorlton Road was cordoned off this morning.
