Detective Superintendent Darren George, of the force's Major Crime Team, said: “Extensive enquiries are continuing as we establish the tragic events which took place on the night of Sunday April 7.

“While three arrests have been made, we are still looking for others suspected of being involved in the disturbance and the murder of Colin Richards.

“Jimmy O’Driscoll and Corey Gauci are both wanted on suspicion of murder, and I am appealing for information and the support of the local community on establishing their whereabouts. This can be done online and anonymously to South Wales Police or through Crimestoppers.

“There has been significant police activity in the area since last Sunday and armed police have been deployed as a precaution while we conduct numerous search warrants and arrest enquiries across the city.

“Our thoughts remain with Colin and his family at this difficult time. Family members continue to be updated and supported by specially trained family liaison officers.”

Mick Duthie, Director of Operations at the charity Crimestoppers, said: “We are appealing to anyone with information about where these individuals are located to contact our charity 100% anonymously as soon as possible.

“It is important to be clear that to assist anybody wanted for questioning over a crime can lead to prosecution.

"Our independent charity is here for people who feel unable to speak to police directly.

"Since 1988, when Crimestoppers began, we have always kept our promise of anonymity to the millions who have trusted us with their crime information.”
