Man arrested over fatal stabbing in Birmingham | UK news



A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a fatal stabbing in the West Midlands during which four other people were injured.

A 37-year-old man was pronounced dead in the street outside a property in Sparkhill, Birmingham, on Friday night.

Police were called to reports of “disorder” just after 10.40pm and found a second man, aged 35, inside the address with serious stab wounds. He was taken to hospital and was in a critical condition on Saturday.

Three other men, two in their 30s and one in his 40s, sustained injuries which police said were not serious.

The 32-year-old suspect would be questioned in due course, West Midlands police said.

Det Insp Nick Barnes, from the force’s homicide team, said: “A man has tragically died and others have been injured as a result of this disorder.

“We understand all the men are known to each other and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the death at this stage.”

He said inquiries were continuing and anyone with information was asked to contact police by calling 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
