TWO men and a teenage boy have been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with a fatal stabbing in Corringham.
Police were contacted by the ambulance service shortly before 7.40pm on Wednesday, March 21, with reports a man had been found injured in Queen Elizabeth Drive.
The 28-year-old victim, from the Corringham area, had suffered stab wounds to the leg and chest.
Sadly he died at the scene, despite the efforts of paramedics.
A 21-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy, both from Stanford-le-Hope, were arrested at an address on Nursery Road, around 11pm last night.
A 24-year-old man from Basildon has also been arrested on suspicion of murder, dangerous driving and failing to stop at a road traffic accident.
All three people remain in police custody for questioning.
