A murder investigation has been launched after two males were stabbed on Hall Lane Brentwood Terrace in Armley.
Officers were called at 5.29pm yesterday (31 March) by the ambulance service after two males had been seriously injured.
The 18-year-old male was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Another male, aged 16, was taken to hospital with serious injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.
Detectives from the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team are investigating, and police cordons are in place on Hall Lane and Brentwood Terrace and the surrounding area will undergo forensic examination and specialist searches.
Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Lee Townley of the Homicide and Major enquiry Team said: “Extensive enquiries are being carried out in relation to this murder investigation, our thoughts remain with the victim who has lost his life as a result of a violent attack on the streets of Leeds.
“We are working to establish the full circumstances surrounding this incident.
“What we do know is that the two males were in a taxi at the time when they were attacked by three suspects in another vehicle.
“I would appeal urgently to anyone who was in the area last night, who may have dash cam footage, or CCTV or mobile phone footage of anything suspicious to come forward.
“This incident will undoubtably cause concern in the community and we are working with our colleagues in the neighbourhood policing team to step up patrols and provide extra reassurance.”
