Officers investigating the death of a man aged in his twenties in Aylesbury on Wednesday (28/10) have made three further arrests in connection with the incident.
The men, all from Buckinghamshire, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder and remain in police custody at this time.
Three other men who had previously been arrested remain in custody as a warrant of further detention has been granted while investigations continue.
The arrests are in connection with an incident in Lembrook Walk, Aylesbury, near to the Edinburgh Playing Fields, on Wednesday, when officers were called to reports of a large fight taking place.
Two men were taken to hospital, where sadly, one died of his injuries. The other man suffered less serious injuries and has since been discharged.
Formal identification has yet to take place and a Home Office post-mortem examination was conducted yesterday (30/10), the results of which are pending further medical opinion.
Senior Investigating Officer Detective Superintendent Kevin Brown, head of Thames Valley Police’s Major Crime Unit, said: “We are continuing this investigation and have made three further arrests.
“The next of kin of the man who has died continue to be supported by specially trained officers, and our thoughts remain with them at this difficult time.
“On behalf of the family, we would request that their privacy is respected while they come to terms with what has happened.
“I can re-assure the local community again that we believe the victim and offenders were known to each other and there is no suggestion of any wider threat to the public.
“However, I am again appealing to anybody with any information that can help this investigation to please contact the 24-hour number 101, quoting reference 43200348281 or make a report online.
