Last night a 19-year-old local man who was at the scene said: “They looked like armed police looking for someone or something.

“It seemed to be mainly around the green in Hogarth Walk.

“There were police and ambulances all over the place. It’s so shocking. You don’t expect this to happen in Corby. It’s been years and years since a teenager was last killed here.”

The police helicopter also hovered above the town in the hours after the incident.

The area is cordoned off.

Anyone with information about the incident should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
