At around 3 p.m., emergency personnel were dispatched to a house on Belmont Drive following a report that a 53-year-old man had been discovered with serious injuries.
Officers responded, and an ambulance transported the victim to the hospital, where he died.
The man has now been identified as Leroy Venner, a resident of Toxteth. His next of kin has been notified.
A post-mortem examination will be performed to determine the cause of death.
A 60-year-old man and a 43-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of murder and are being held in police custody while detectives question them.
An investigation is underway, with CCTV, forensic, and house-to-house searches taking place in the area.
“This was a tragic incident in which a man sadly lost his life,” Detective Chief Inspector Mike Dalton said.
“An investigation is now underway, which is still in its early stages as we try to figure out what happened.”
