Two men were arrested on suspicion of murder today after a man suffered fatal injuries to his head and chest.
Officers were called to an address in Newton Heath, Manchester, yesterday following reports that the 31-year-old victim had been found unconscious.
He was taken to North Manchester General Hospital, where he died a short time later.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "At 6.40pm on Tuesday March 23, police were called to Harold Priestnall Close in Newton Heath following reports a man was unconscious.
"Officers attended and discovered a 31-year-old man with injuries to his head and chest.
"It is not yet clear how he came about his injuries, though police have ruled out the theory he had been shot.
