Teen, 19, stabbed to death in mass brawl as man, 26, and 16-year-old boy arrested on suspicion of murder in Bradford

A 16-YEAR-OLD boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a teenager was knifed to death in Braford in a "devastating" attack.

Horror exploded in the city centre early this morning after two 19-year-old men were stabbed outside the Oastler Shopping Centre.

Police and paramedics rushed to John Street shortly after 5.45am.

However, despite the efforts of blue light workers, one of the men died of his injuries.

The second casualty continues to fight for his life in hospital.

He is in a stable condition, police say.

Two males – the 16-year-old and a 26-year-old – are being quizzed on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.

Both remain in custody this afternoon.

Detective Chief Inspector Marc Bowes said cops were called to reports of a huge brawl in the street.

"One young man has unfortunately lost his life and another is continuing to fight for his," he said.

"This is an absolutely devastating incident and a significant police operation and investigation is underway to identify and arrest those responsible. 

"As a result of our enquiries, two males have been arrested and we are continuing to gather evidence in relation to this tragic incident.

"This has happened in a prominent location in Bradford city centre and, while the area is generally quieter at the time of the day that this incident has happened, there will have been people around.

"Our understanding from initial calls to the police is that there was a large group fighting and a number of these people will be significant witnesses and we would urge them to make themselves known. 

"I ask that anyone with information, however insignificant it may seem in itself, to please make contact as soon as possible as it could be significant to our enquiries." 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team by calling 101, quoting crime reference 13210516983. 

Witnesses can also use the 101 Live Chat facility on the West Yorkshire Police website.
