A 14-YEAR-OLD boy has been stabbed to death in a “shocking and senseless” attack in Birmingham.
Police have launched a murder probe and are for up to seven suspects after the “callous” killing in the Kingstanding area.
Officers were sadly unable to save the teen and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
West Mids Police said they have “flooded” the neighbourhood with officers and have called on witnesses to come forward.
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 have officers with the boy’s family who are facing the cruellest of news this evening. My heart goes out to them.
“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.”
