The Major Crime Unit is continuing its investigation following an incident in Sheffield Road, Slough, last Thursday (24 February).

Further investigation has revealed that there were four occupants travelling in a car, when an argument ensued resulting in the driver pulling over. The four occupants left the vehicle, however, the argument continued on the street, between a man in his late teens and the other occupants. This resulted in the driver, a male in his forties, ending up on the ground and losing consciousness.

He was taken to hospital but was sadly pronounced dead a short while later. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers.

An 18-year-old man, who was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder, has now been bailed while enquiries continue.

No one else was injured during the incident.

A post-mortem has also been conducted and cause of death has been established as cardiac arrest following an altercation in the context of cardiomegaly and severe coronary heart disease.

Formal identification of the victim has yet to take place. 

Senior investigating officer, Detective Inspector Mike Roddy, of the Major Crime Unit, said: “We continue our investigation following this incident in which a man has sadly died. Our thoughts remain with his family at this difficult time, and they are being supported by specially trained officers.
