POLICE are treating a murder inquiry, launched after an incident at Kit Hill last Thursday (March 26), as an isolated incident and have thanked the public for their support.
A 22-year-old man from Plymouth was seriously injured and taken to hospital after the incident at around 9.30pm. He died from his injuries on Saturday.
A 37-year-old man and a 29-year-old man, both from Gunnislake, have been arrested on suspicion of murder of the 22-year-old man.
In addition, a 38-year-old man and a 26-year-old man, both from Callington, have been arrested on suspicion of the attempted murder of a 37-year-old man during the same incident.
Three of the suspects are on police bail having been interviewed by detectives from the Major Crime Team.
Meanwhile, the 37-year-old suspect remains under police guard in Derriford Hospital where he is recovering from multiple injuries which he sustained during the same incident.
Officers believe this to be an isolated incident between a group of men known to each other.
At this time police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the murder or attempted murder.
Detective inspector Rob Back said: ‘This has been a very fast moving inquiry and I would like to thank the communities within East Cornwall for all the support they have provided, particularly those who have been socially distancing or self-isolating.’
Please contact police on 101 quoting reference CR/025664/20 if you have information about this crime.
