Andre Gayle, 29, died in hospital on Wednesday, two days after being stabbed near Easton Community Centre.

Three men, aged 22, 27 and 29, have all been arrested on suspicion of murder, Avon and Somerset Police said.

Six people in total have now been arrested over the killing, a force spokesman said.
