A man named Kev stood outside the entrance as several people asked him why police were parked by the bus stop across the road. Kev shrugged his shoulders and shook his head whenever anyone came to him for information and seemed surprised and concerned when he found out the real reason that officers were there. Just before 1pm, a plain-clothes detective made his way into the building, carrying evidence bags. Around half an hour later, a uniformed officer followed him.

Two ladies left the building to head to work at around 2.30pm but they also seemed perplexed. "It sounds like you know more than us," one told the M.E.N. "I was working last night and I had wondered why they [the police] were here but they haven't told us anything. I just know it was difficult to get into the building and it took us a while to figure out how to actually get to our floor." A GMP spokesman said: "Officers were called to Briar Hill Court, Salford, at about 10:25pm on 17 June 2022 to reports a man was unconscious.
