A major controversy broke out moments before a teenager was stabbed to death and another seriously injured.
Tragic Kian Tordoff was pronounced dead by emergency personnel at 5.45 a.m. after fighting broke out in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
Kian, 19, and his 19-year-old friend Matt Lowther were also attacked after a horrific night of violence outside the Ostler Shopping Center.
Following the incident, the condition of new dad Matt remains critical but stable.
A 16-year-old and a 26-year-old have been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempt to murder.
Dramatic footage from the moments before the murder showed several men fighting among themselves in front of a huge crowd.
One man can be seen hurling punches at the other before a group of men arrive and shout “he’s getting it” and “give him”.
Police search for injured people after being called to John Street, Bradford.
The teenagers are said to have been partying at The Village nightclub on Sackville Street before the tragedy occurred.
Family members paid tribute to Kian on social media by calling him an “angel” and “innocent young boy”.
His cousin Ellie wrote: “Rest in peace my beautiful big cousin you will never be forgotten.
“Fly high angel. It still doesn’t feel real.”
Another family member said: “My heart breaks for the entire family to lose another innocent boy.
“Kian Tordoff You are loved and missed very much. Love you so much my heart is hurting.”
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Bowes said: “Unfortunately one young man has lost his life and another is fighting for him.
“This is an absolutely devastating incident and a significant police operation and investigation is underway to identify and arrest those responsible.
“As a result of our interrogation, two men have been arrested and we are continuing to collect evidence regarding this tragic incident.
“It took place in a prominent location in Bradford city center and, while the area is generally quiet on the day the incident occurred, there may have been people around.
“Our understanding from the initial call to the police is that there was a large group fighting and many of these people would be important witnesses and we would urge them to apprise themselves.
“I ask that anyone with information, however insignificant in itself it may seem, please get in touch as soon as possible as it may be important to our enquiry.”
