Neri Morse, aged 24, sadly died following an incident on Pollard Street at around 6.30pm on Wednesday 20 April 2022. During this incident, a second man - also in his 20s - was injured.
Detectives believe this was linked to an incident at Zaf's Go Local on Butler Street between 6.15pm and 6.25pm that evening.
Detective Chief Inspector Wes Knights, of GMP's Major Incident Team, said: It's now just over one week on from this tragic incident in which a young man lost his life. The investigation has moved quickly, and we have three people charged in connection with Neri's death. However, we still need to piece together the events that led to the stabbing.

Please get in touch with police or Crimestoppers anonymously if you know or witnessed anything at all, as your information could be crucial in helping us to understand what happened that evening".
"From tomorrow, billboards will be placed close to the scenes in Ancoats and Butler Street displaying contact details for witnesses and information about the incident."
