On Sunday 7 June 2015, shortly before 3am, police were called to Manchester Road to a report of a large disturbance.
When officers attended they found that a group of up to six people had launched an unprovoked attack on another group of men, who were standing outside the pub. Two of the men had sustained serious injuries.
Dominic Doyle, 21, from the Denton area, sadly later died from his injuries in hospital. A post-mortem examination found he died from stab wounds.
The other victim, 18, was treated for stab wounds in hospital.
Detective Chief Inspector Ian Crewe from GMP’s Major Incident Team said: “All those sentenced were involved in extreme violence and time and time again we see these cases where a night out ended in tragedy.
“A young man has lost his life because of a senseless act of extreme violence and a family have to come to terms with that. Another person was extremely fortunate to survive this attack having been left unconscious in the street.
“This has been and continues to be a traumatic time for Dominic’s family, and our commitment to protecting our communities from knife crime will continue”.
