A marked police car and the words

An investigation has been launched following the death of a man in south Bristol on Tuesday 11 October.

Officers were called to a property in Parsons Paddock, Hengrove, at 9pm following reports of a disturbance.

One man, is his 40s, was given CPR at the scene before being taken to hospital, where he sadly died. We are currently investigating the circumstances of his death and a forensic post-mortem examination will now take place to determine how the man died.

Three people have been arrested on suspicion of murder following the incident and remain in police custody.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Mark Newbury said: “The man’s next of kin have been informed and they’re being supported at this difficult time and our thoughts and sympathies are with them.

“We are conducting further enquiries at the scene. A cordon remains in place while specialist crime scene investigators examine the scene. House-to-house enquiries are also being conducted.

“While we believe this is an isolated incident, additional reassurance patrols are being carried out by the Neighbourhood Policing team.”
