A 17-year-old boy was arrested this morning on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody.

Two men, aged 23 and 20, are also being held on suspicion of murder.

Another two men, aged 32 and 26, have now been released on bail.

Detective Chief Inspector Matt Croome, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit, said: “I’d once again like to pass on my condolences to Mr Connor’s loved ones during what must be an incredibly difficult time for them.

“A large team of officers has been investigating what happened and working around the clock to build up a picture of what happened.

“I am pleased we have now been able to arrest an additional suspect but would like to stress that this is still an ongoing investigation, so I appeal again to any witnesses who have yet to come forward.

“We want to hear from people who were in the Crown Island area of Nottingham at around the time of this incident and heard anything suspicious.

“We’d particularly like to hear from residents or motorists with any CCTV, doorbell camera, or dashcam footage that could assist our inquiries.

“Any piece of information, however small it might seem, could make a huge difference in this investigation.”

Anyone with additional information is asked to call the police on 101, quoting incident 375 of 25 December 2023.
