Murder investigation launched in Wednesbury

A murder investigation has been launched after the death of a man stabbed in Wednesbury town centre yesterday (8 June) lunchtime.

Abdi Mohamed was rushed to hospital after being found with serious neck injuries in Upper High Street.

Sadly nothing could be done to save the 26-year-old and he was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.

A 38-year-old man who was arrested yesterday is now being questioned on suspicion of murder.

Detective Inspector Wes Martin, from our homicide unit, said: "A man has tragically lost his life and we're doing all we can to support his family who are understandably devastated.

"Our enquiries to establish the circumstances leading to this attack are ongoing and we're grateful to support of everyone who has provided us with information so far.

"However, we remain keen to hear from anybody who hasn't come forward so far but can assist our investigation."

Please contact us on Live Chat through the website or call 101, quoting log 1871 from 8 June.
