Investigations are today continuing after one man died and three people were taken to hospital after a stabbing incident in Thorpe St Andrew.
Norfolk Police said armed officers were called to Primrose Crescent at around 7.35pm on Wednesday, April 14, to reports of a disturbance.
When they arrived, they found four people with injuries. One man died at the scene despite the efforts of paramedics.
The other three were treated for knife wound injuries and taken to hospital.
Two men were arrested at the scene in connection with the incident and will be questioned.
A police cordon today remains in place in Primrose Crescent, a quiet residential area off Thorpe Road, while the investigation continues.
On Thursday morning at least eight police vehicles - including two forensic services vehicles - remained at the scene.
Forensic officers, in white suits, could be seen working within the cordon carrying out investigations to try and piece together the events.
