A murder investigation has been launched after a man found with serious injuries died in hospital.

Dego Ahmed, 39, from Bristol, was found with head and neck injuries at a property in Stapleton Road on 22 October. He has since died.

Six men have been arrested and Aden Mohamoud, 42, of Stapleton Road, Easton, has been charged with wounding.

He is due to appear at Bristol Crown Court on 25 November. Two other men have been released on bail.

No action was taken against three others.

Mr Ahmed's family described him as "kind and helpful".

"He would never hurt anybody and if he saw trouble he would be the one to try and stop it," a statement added.

"He has three children who have now been left without their father."

Dego's sister, Halima Ahmed, added: "I raised him, he was so innocent to what was going on around him and the affect his death has had on the community is huge."

Avon and Somerset Police has appealed for anyone who saw a disorder at the junction of Stapleton Road and Clare Road on 22 October, where Mr Ahmed was found, to come forward.
