A TEENAGER has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the 'devastating' death of a 22-year-old man.

Detectives held the 19-year-old, from Gosport, after the shock death in Keyes Road, Bridgemary, in the early hours of Friday morning.

Officers confirmed the teenager is still being held in custody following the 2.32am assault.

A crashed red Vauxhall Corsa is linked to the investigation, police said.

The victim's family has been informed of this death.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Matt Gillooly said: “We are working to establish the circumstances in regards to the man who has died.

“We recognise that this is a shocking and devastating incident for the man’s family and those living in the area. We are using a number of specialist teams to progress our enquiries as quickly as possible.

“Members of the local community will be key in helping us to establish who was in the area at the time.

“I’d ask anyone who may have dashcam or doorbell footage that could help us to contact us as soon as possible. If you saw the red Vauxhall Corsa in the Fareham and Gosport area early this morning, we also want to hear from you.”

District Commander for Gosport, Chief Inspector Chris Spellerberg, added: “Alongside our investigators the Neighbourhood Policing Team will be in the Nobes Avenue and Keyes Road area throughout the coming days.

“Anyone with any concerns can speak to our uniformed officers who will be carrying out regular patrols and house-to-house enquiries.

“We are working with the local community and partner agencies to ensure that we understand the impact of this incident for those living in the Bridgemary area.

“This is a very rare occurrence for Gosport and our teams will be working hard over the weekend to provide reassurance to those in the area.”
