Following the argument, Olejarczyk walked to a friend's house to fetch a kitchen knife before returning to confront Mr Gorski, police said.

When Mr Gorski approached him to try to disarm him, Olejarczyk stabbed him in the chest before fleeing.

Later that day Olejarczyk approached two PCSOs at the crime scene and turned himself in.
