Cops confirmed today that a 17-year-old boy had been arrested on suspicion of murder.
No further details were confirmed, but it is believed the boy remains in custody for questioning.
Tyron’s family paid a touching tribute to their lost relative, known to his friends as Taz.
The statement from his mum Nicola and other family members read: “Tyron…was a very much-loved son, dad, grandson and brother, our hearts are in a million pieces.
“You were a devoted dad, super talented builder and could turn your hand to anything, you loved nothing more than sending us a million and one photos of the job from start to finish and always said ‘I’m ace me aren’t a’ we were always so proud.
“We will always remember the good times, your huge cheeky smile and your great sense of humour.”
The lovely memorial said how deeply he would be missed by loved ones, before finishing: “Sleep tight son love ya.”
Greater Manchester Police are still appealing for further information.
