Man Arrested In Connection With Suspicious Death

A man has been arrested in connection with the death of a man in his 20s, police said.

Avon and Somerset Police said officers were called to a house in Kennard Road, Kingswood, near Bristol during the early hours of Sunday.

The ambulance service reported a man had suffered a “serious injury” and was pronounced dead a short time later.

Detective Chief Inspector Darren Hannant, of the major crime investigation team, said:

“At this stage we’re treating the death as suspicious and a 25-year-old man has been arrested.

“A forensic post-mortem examination will now be carried out to determine the cause of the man’s death and the property has been cordoned off so further inquiries can take place.

“The victim’s family are aware and will be supported by a specialist liaison officer.

“We know this incident will cause concern to those living in the local area so there will be additional patrols of the area over the coming days.”
