A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the death of a man in Manchester on Saturday night.

A 22-year-old suspect is in custody after Greater Manchester Police began an investigation into the death of a man at an address in South Manchester last night.

Shortly before 6.40pm on Saturday, September 24, police were called by the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) to a report of a 42-year-old man found dead in suspicious circumstances in a property on Beverly Road.

His family has been informed and specially-trained officers are supporting them at this distressing time.

The suspect was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder and a dedicated team of detectives from GMP's Major Incident Team are investigating and are questioning him in custody.

Detective Inspector Mark Davis, of the Major Incident Team, said: “We’ve been carrying out many enquiries in the area and I would like to appeal for anyone with information to contact the police.

“That said, our investigation so far has strongly indicated that this is a tragic but isolated incident inside the property, with no risk to the wider community.

“We will have local officers patrolling the area and continuing with our enquiries in the coming days and anyone with information should speak to our officers or contact us via 101 quoting incident 2692 of 24/09/2022.
