Marcus Ramsay was stabbed to death in Horninglow Road, Firth Park, last weekend

- When police officers and paramedics arrived at the scene there was a crowd of around 100 people gathered in the street.

- Both emergency services described the crowd as ‘hostile’ and it was reported to have been difficult for ambulances to get to the injured man until officers cleared a route through.

- A police officer administered initial emergency first aid until public order was restored and ambulances could reach the patient.

- Marcus, a dad-of-two, was taken to the Northern General Hospital but could not be saved and was pronounced dead a short time later.

- Four other men, all 24, were also injured during the incident and were treated at hospital but survived.

- No arrests have yet been made.

- Detectives believe that a number of those at the house party had attended an illegal rave in Concord Park, Shiregreen, earlier in the night.

- They have issued an appeal for anyone at either of the events to come forward and share any mobile phone footage they may have in a bid to help establish the movements of those involved in the attack.

- Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Mark Oughton, who is leading the police probe, said there were ‘potentially dozens of witnesses’.

- An inquest into Mr Ramsay’s death was opened and adjourned yesterday for further enquiries to be carried out.
