Brislington murder investigation: Police forensic investigators spotted at property near scene

Police have been spotted at a property on Bloomfield Road in Brislington today (May 30) as part of an ongoing murder investigation following the death of a man last week. On Monday a team of police wearing protective clothing, masks and gloves could be seen breaking down the door and entering the property, while a number of police vehicles, including those belonging to the ‘Forensic Services’ were parked outside.

A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police told Bristol Live: “Yesterday, we carried out a warrant at an address on Bloomfield Road as part of our ongoing investigation into the death of a man following a disorder on the street on Tuesday, May 24.

“Officers remain at the property while they and specialist forensic investigators examine it. Enquiries into the incident continue and anyone with information which could help our inquiry is asked to call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5222123307.”

Police were called just before 10pm on May 24 to attend a report of a disorder in the Bloomfield Road area of Brislington. Officers discovered one man in his 30s with serious injuries in nearby Runnymead Avenue, and despite being given emergency first aid, he died from his injuries.

Police say at least six other men suffered non life-threatening injuries and were either taken to or self-attended hospital. It’s believed the incident involved several people who arrived at the scene in vehicles and one car was abandoned at the scene and later recovered for a forensic examination.
