Teen murdered in Smethwick


Police appeal for information after 16 year boy dies after being stabbed near a club in Smethwick.

Police were called to reports of a disturbance at the Smethwick Home Guard and Old Comrades Club in Oldbury Road, Smethwick at just before 1.30am on Saturday 28th July.

A 16 year old lad from Walsall was found injured and taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, where he later died.

A post mortem will take place later today.

Police have sealed the area of the incident and forensic enquiries at the scene are ongoing.

DI Warren Hines 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.”
