Four people are being held in police custody in relation to the murder of a 43-year-old man in St Ann’s on Sunday afternoon.
Two men both aged 39 have been arrested on suspicion of murder, whilst a 35-year-old woman and a 15-year-old boy have also been detained on suspicion of GBH and assisting an offender respectively.
Police were called to the scene following reports of a stabbing just after 4pm.
The arrests have been made following the incident on Hedderley Walk in St Ann’s on Sunday, where a 43-year-old man was found and rushed to Queen’s Medical Centre where he later died.
Nottinghamshire police are also keen to trace a silver Ford Focus car which is believed to have been close to the incident at the time, although the occupants of the car are not believed to have been involved.
Natalie Christon, 40, of Comwyn Gardens, lives just meters away from the crime scene. She said: “It’s awful, I have young children and I can’t let them out of the house.
I feel sick that something like this could happen on my doorstep.

The victim has not yet been formally identified, but the murder has still been met by sorrow and worry from local residents.
Valery Haywood, 75, of Dane Court, St Ann’s said: “I can’t even begin to think about how awful it must be for whoever he belongs to.
“It’s very worrying, you worry about the children, you worry about the old people.”
Anyone who has any further information on the incident from Sunday afternoon, should telephone Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting the incident number 511 of 31st May.
