The horrific killing comes just a day after a young man was stabbed to death and another was left seriously injured following a mass brawl in Bradford, West Yorkshire.   

Terrifying footage obtained by the Sun shows the moments leading up to the murder of 19-year-old Kian Tordoff, who was pronounced dead by emergency workers shortly after 5.45am on Sunday morning.

The horror had exploded in the city centre early on Sunday after Kian and another 19-year-old man, reported to Kian's friend Matt Lowther, were stabbed outside the Oastler Shopping Centre.

Matt, who recently had a baby with his girlfriend, remains in hospital where he is fighting for his life.

A 16-year-old and a 26-year-old have been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.

Kian's family shared their heartbreak over his untimely passing to the Telegraph and Argus.

"Rest in peace my beautiful big cousin you will never be forgotten," Kian's cousin Ellie wrote.

"Fly high angel. It still doesn’t seem real."
