The victim was taken to hospital by the South Central Ambulance Service but paramedics could not save him.

“The victim’s next of kin are yet to be informed, so I would urge the media and the public not to speculate on the victim’s identity until his next of kin has been informed and he has been formally identified.
“I understand that this incident will cause concern in the community but I want to reassure all residents that the Major Crime Unit has commenced an extensive investigation. We are already reviewing CCTV, taking witness statements and carrying out forensic examinations.”
A scenewatch is in place and Tesco’s underground car park is currently closed.
Police asked the public to avoid the area while it carries out vital enquiries.
