Thames Valley Police have launched a murder investigation. Det Chf Insp Mick Saunders, who is leading the probe, said: "This appears to have been an entirely pointless loss of life and we are following one distinct line of inquiry to trace a named individual involved in the altercation on Saturday evening.
"Although there are operational and legal reasons why I cannot publicly name him at this time, I am appealing to him to give himself up and give us his account of events."
The cul de sac end of Bradley Road is currently cordoned off.
Nobody has been arrested and police are appealing for information.
Anyone who saw something suspicious at the time or who knows who committed the crime is asked to contact Det Ch Insp Mick Saunders at Slough Police Station on 0845 8 505 505. (Slough Observer)
