Detectives have named a Brierley Hill man who was stabbed in the stomach at the weekend as Mansoor Mahmood. A murder inquiry was launched after the 24-year-old was found outside Dixi Chicken diner on High Street, Brierley Hill at around 4.45pm on Saturday 15 October and later died in hospital. A forensic post mortem examination revealed he died as a result of a stab wound. Detective Inspector Harry Harrison, from West Midlands Police’s Homicide Team 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."
Information can be passed directly to DI Harrison by calling 101.
