Officers investigating a fatal stabbing in Basingstoke have made a total of eight arrests.
Police were called to a disturbance at 10.44pm on Saturday 31 August at an address in Shooters Way, Basingstoke.
On arrival, officers found a man who had sustained stab wounds. Ambulance crews were in attendance and he was taken to hospital where he died.
His next of kin have been informed. Formal identification procedures remain ongoing at this time.
The following people have been arrested in connection with the incident:
Two 29-year-old men from Basingstoke arrested over the weekend have been released with no further action.
Chief Inspector Stuart Ratcliffe said: “I would like to reassure the local community that our officers will be conducting further patrols in the area in the wake of this incident.
“They will be supported by the Community Safety Patrol Officers from Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.
“If you see our officers out and about and you have any concerns or information, please do not hesitate to approach them.”
Officers are also investigating a second incident that could potentially be related. At 10.53pm the same night, the Ambulance Service reported they had been called to a man with stab wounds in nearby Normanton Road, Basingstoke. He has been taken to hospital where his condition is described as serious but stable.
We believe both incidents were targeted.
