In a statement released by the force on Saturday morning, officers said they arrested three men involved in a homicide and criminal damage case that happened on Friday night in Tai Wai.

At about 6.30pm on Friday, police received a report that a man was struggling with three others on Shing Wan Road in Tai Wai.

He was found unconscious with head injuries, and later certified dead at Prince of Wales Hospital at 8.52pm on Friday.

“The three men, aged 29, 32, and 40 respectively, were arrested in connection with the case and are being detained [for inquiries],” the statement said.
