Mansoor Mahmood, aged 24, from Brierley Hill, was stabbed in the stomach following an incident at the weekend.

Emergency services were dispatched to Dixi Chicken diner on Brierley Hill High Street, at around 4.45pm on Saturday 15th October, to reports of a incident.

On arrival, crews found Mr Mahmood with a severe stab wound. He was taken to hospital where he sadly died.

A forensic post mortem examination has revealed he died as a result of a stab wound.

Detective Inspector Harry Harrison, from West Midlands Police’s Homicide Team, is leading the investigation and continues to appeal for information.

He said: “We are still piecing together the circumstances of Mr Mahmood’s death but strongly suspect this was a targeted attack and that the two people involved may have known each other.

“We have spoken to some witnesses already but I’m sure there are many more people who saw what happened, or saw the offender running away.

“If you saw anything – regardless of how insignificant you think it may be – and have not yet spoken to us, I would ask you to give me a call.”
