Four youths have been arrested following the death of an 18-year-old guy in Bournemouth following a scuffle.
Just before 1.30 a.m. on Saturday, police got a report that a man had been seriously injured at the Lower Gardens park after a brawl.
The victim, who has not been identified but was a local, died at the site.
His family and the coroner have both been informed.
Four 18-year-old men have been arrested on suspicion of murder: one from the town, two from the Portsmouth region, and one from Poole.
Superintendent Gavin House of Dorset Police said: “Very sadly a young man has lost his life and our thoughts are with his family and friends.
“A full and detailed investigation is under way into this incident and I would urge anyone who saw what happened and has not yet spoken to officers to please contact us.
“Bournemouth Square and a large area of the Lower Gardens have been cordoned off to enable officers to conduct a thorough investigation of the scene.
“I would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while this vital work takes place.
“Members of the public will see an increased police presence in the area over the coming days and officers from the local neighbourhood policing team can be approached with any concerns.”
