A 16-year-old boy has been stabbed to death in Birmingham, West Midlands Police said.
The teenager was found with critical knife wounds by officers near a park in Small Heath at around 8pm last night.
He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, while a 15-year-old boy who was also assaulted was treated for minor injuries.
Detective chief inspector Edward Foster said: ‘The investigation is in its early stages and we are keen to hear from anyone who was in Herbert Road or Sara Park at just before 8pm last night.
‘A teenager has sadly lost his life and another was assaulted, we are working hard to establish the circumstances around what happened.’
The stabbing comes five days after another 16-year-old schoolboy died in a knife attack outside a sixth-form college in the same city.
