Details of Incident

At 7:15pm on Sunday 26th July 2020, a group of males armed with weapons have chased the victim and his friends toward the alleyway between Markington Street and Henbury Street in Moss Side. The victim has become separated from his friends and he was cornered at the mouth to the alleyway by this group at which time he was stabbed in the chest. He made his way into the alley followed by this group where he was further assaulted and left unconscious. These males made off from the area on foot and when police attended they discovered the victim and despite the best efforts of the officers and ambulance service, he sadly died of his injuries.

Four males were arrested that evening on suspicion of the murder of Mohamoud Mohamed; however they have since been eliminated of any involvement.

A motive has so far not been established for this attack but enquiries are ongoing to identify the full circumstances leading to the attack and the persons involved.
