An 18-year-old who was run over and stabbed in a suspected targeted attack has died.

The victim was found with stab wounds to the neck and stomach injuries at 17:15 BST on Thursday in Moss Side, Manchester.

He underwent surgery in hospital but died on Saturday, Greater Manchester Police said.

A 17-year-old boy arrested on suspicion of attempted murder has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Police believe the victim was chased near to Greenheys Lane in Moss Side by a group of men.

A short time later, he was hit by a blue Vauxhall Corsa on Moss Lane East, before being stabbed.

The car was later recovered on a small road in Whalley Range, police said.

Det Ch Insp Terry Crompton said an investigation was ongoing and appealed for witnesses to the attack.
