An area of the road has been cordoned off and forensic officers have been seen working at the scene late at night.
Officials are now appealing for “especially violent incidents” to come forward for eyewitnesses.
They say it was “probably” seen or heard by the public leaving work, returning home or arriving home.
Stuart Wilkinson, the chief detective of GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “This is a particularly violent incident and the consequence is that one person died tragically. Our concerns are with his loved ones because specially trained colleagues support them.
“Our investigation is already well underway and we are doing our best to establish exactly what happened and to catch the person or persons responsible.
“We are appealing for information – the incident took place near a busy junction on Southmore Road, where there are several businesses and homes, so there is a possibility that members of the public who were leaving work, returning home or coming home or seeing or something significant I heard.
“There are dedicated investigators and patrols in the area, where they will be at least in the coming days. I hope this reassures members of the public but those who are concerned can certainly speak directly to these officials.”
