A murder investigation has begun after a teenager was injured after a row in Leicester.

Officers were called at around 7.50pm on Tuesday 24 November to reports of a fight between a group of men in Freeman Road North. 

A 16-year-old boy was found injured at the scene and was taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary for treatment, where he died. 

Three men, aged 29, 34 and 35, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and are currently in police custody.

An 18-year-old taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries has also been arrested.

Part of Freeman Road North, between the junctions of Saltersford Road and Uppingham Road, and a house in Broad Avenue have been taped off to allow for Leicestershire Police's forensic teams to examine the scene.

Detectives think the street was busy at the time of the incident and officers are keen to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity and witnessed what happened.
