The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner Simon Foster, said: “The stabbing in Kingstanding yesterday that led to the death of a 14 year old boy has shocked and appalled the people of the West Midlands.
“First and foremost my thoughts go out to the victim and his family and friends.
“A child has needlessly lost his life, but when somebody is killed it ruins and devastates many more.
“Whilst those close to the boy are facing untold grief, I would like to reassure them and the wider community that West Midlands Police are working around the clock to find those responsible for this and officers won’t rest until they do.
“This stabbing underlines the need for communities, the police and other organisations across the West Midlands to work together to tackle violence.”Back to News Archive
