A HUGE brawl broke out just moments before a teenager was stabbed to death and another left seriously injured.
Tragic Kian Tordoff was pronounced dead by emergency workers shortly after 5.45am after the fight broke out in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
Kian, 19, and his pal Matt Lowther, also 19, were attacked after the horror night of violence erupted outside of the Oastler Shopping Centre.
New dad Matt currently remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition after the incident.
A 16-year-old and a 26-year-old have been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.
Dramatic footage of the moments before the killing show a number of men brawling infront of huge crowds.
One man can be seen raining down punches at another, before a group of men come over and shout “he is getting it” and “give it to him”.
Cops discovered the injured men after being called to John Street, Bradford.
The teenagers were said to have been partying at The Village nightclub, in Sackville Street, before tragedy struck.
Family members paid tribute to Kian on social media, calling him an “angel” and “innocent young boy”.
His cousin Ellie wrote: "Rest in peace my beautiful big cousin you will never be forgotten.
"Fly high angel. It still doesn’t seem real."
Another family member added: “My heart is breaking so much for all the family to lose another innocent young boy.
“Kian Tordoff you are loved and going to be missed so much cuz. Love you so much my heart is aching.”
Detective Chief Inspector Marc Bowes said: "One young man has unfortunately lost his life and another is continuing to fight for his.
"This is an absolutely devastating incident and a significant police operation and investigation is underway to identify and arrest those responsible.
"As a result of our enquiries, two males have been arrested and we are continuing to gather evidence in relation to this tragic incident.
"This has happened in a prominent location in Bradford city centre and, while the area is generally quieter at the time of the day that this incident has happened, there will have been people around.
"Our understanding from initial calls to the police is that there was a large group fighting and a number of these people will be significant witnesses and we would urge them to make themselves known.
"I ask that anyone with information, however insignificant it may seem in itself, to please make contact as soon as possible as it could be significant to our enquiries."
