Murder of a 16 year old Rhamero West

Details of Incident
A murder investigation was launched on 9 September 2021 after officers were called to Norton Street in Trafford just before 6pm to a report of a stabbing.
Emergency services attended and found a 16-year-old teenager, Rhamero West from south Manchester, with a number of stab wounds.
Emergency services provided vital medical treatment before he was taken to hospital where he sadly died a short time later.
Other incidents and scenes were identified on the evening of the murder which detectives are working to piece together. Enquiries have led to detectives believing that four/five people in a blue BMW car, which Rhamero was in, were being chased by another vehicle from Upper Chorlton Road into the residential streets of Trafford. Rhamero left the vehicle but was caught and suffered fatal injuries.
Detective Chief Inspector Liz Hopkinson, from GMP's Major Incident Team, said: "Our thoughts are with Rhamero's family and we have specialist officers supporting his mum, dad and brother through this extremely distressing time.
"Since the attack, we've already followed up a number of lines of enquiry and we're carefully examining CCTV and forensics.
"There will be people who know who was involved in this attack on a young teenager and we would ask them to come forward - even the smallest bit of information may prove vital in our investigation.
