Two 19-year-olds have been arrested in connection with the murder of a boy, 16, who was stabbed to death in Bristol.
Police say they were called to reports of a disturbance at a property on Stothard Road in the Lockleaze area of the city at around 5.50am on Sunday.
The boy, who was found with severe knife wounds, was taken to Southmead Hospital where died out his injuries. 
He has not yet been formally identified.
A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Police said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the stabbing.
Senior investigating officer Richard Pegler said: "This investigation is at a very early stage and we are doing everything possible to determine how the young man died.
"We have specially trained family liaison officers who are supporting the young man's family during this difficult time.
"A post-mortem examination will be carried out by a Home Office pathologist in due course."
Police have warned local residents there will be increased police activity in the area while the investigation continues, but said there is no risk to the wider community.
Stothard Road will remain closed for the foreseeable future, police said.
