West Midlands Police have launched a murder investigation after a 14-year-old boy was stabbed in Kingstanding, Birmingham, last night (31 May).
Sadly nothing could be done to save the teenager and he died at the scene.
The police say they understand the victim was attacked on College Road at the junction with Wardour Grove around 7.30pm by up to seven offenders, who ran off towards Chester Road.
Detective Inspector Ranj Sangha, from the force’s homicide unit, said: “This is a shocking and senseless tragedy. Another young life has been taken far too soon.
“We will be leaving no stone unturned in our hunt for the callous individuals responsible for this, or for anyone harbouring them, knowing what they have done.”
