A 28-year-old man, who died following an incident in Sheffield yesterday (Sunday 15 November) has today been named as Kamran Khan.
Mr Khan was found outside a property at Club Garden Road, Sharrow, at around 2.15am with serious injuries. He was taken to hospital but was sadly pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
He has today been formally identified and his family is being supported by specially trained officers.
A post-mortem examination revealed he died as a result of a stab wound to the chest.

“There will continue to be an increased police presence in the area today and throughout the week as investigations continue, which I hope will provide further reassurance to the public. Please do not hesitate to speak to one of our officers if you have any concerns.
“I would also like to thank the community for their support and cooperation with this investigation so far, and would urge anyone who has any information that could help with the investigation to contact us if they haven’t already.”
