1:00pm Saturday 28th July 2012 in Local
A MURDER investigation has been launched after a 16-year-old boy died after being stabbed in Smethwick in the early hours of this morning.
A disturbance at the Smethwick Home Guard and Old Comrades Club in Oldbury Road, was reported to police just before 1.30am.
The victim, a teenager from Walsall, was taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with stab wounds, but later died.
Detective Inspector Warren Hines, of West Midlands Police, said: “It is believed there were a large number of people at the club last night and early this morning, and I am appealing for anyone who saw what happened and who hasn’t yet spoken to police to come forward.”
Anyone with information can call force CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A post mortem is due to take place today.
