MERSEYSIDE Police have launched a murder investigation following the death of an 18-year-old man.
At about 1pm yesterday, the man, from Kirkdale, presented himself at the accident and emergency department of the Royal Liverpool Hospital with a knife wound to his chest.
He was treated for his injuries but later died.
Crime scene investigators were last night carrying out forensic examination in and around the Chirkdale Street area of Kirkdale, and house-to-house inquiries were taking place.
High-visibility patrols were stepped up in the area to reassure residents.
A Home Office post- mortem examination will now take place to establish the cause of the man’s death.
Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact Merseyside Police on 0151-777 4064 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.http://www.liverpooldailypost.co.uk/liverpool-news/regional-news/2009/09/15/liverpool-murder-investigation-launched-after-fatal-stabbing-in-kirkdale-92534-24688711/
It's ridiculously bad by ours at the minute.
This happened at the bottom of our street, over by one of the local shops.
There was also two cars shooting at each other early hours on Westminster Road, also in Kirkdale.
The lad was known as Bumper by ours. RIP Bumper.
