A murder investigation is under way today after a man was stabbed to death in Sheffield.

The 21-year-old victim was found injured after emergency services were called to a house on Southey Avenue, Longley, at about 9.45pm yesterday.

He was taken to hospital but died later in the evening, a spokesman for South Yorkshire Police confirmed.

The man’s family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

Today the scene of the incident was cordoned off as detectives tried to determine the exact sequence of last night’s events.

Anyone with information is asked to ring South Yorkshire Police on the force’s 101 number, quoting log reference 1125 of March 23.
