Police statement on Moseley murder investigation

The police officer leading the investigation into the murder of a 16-year-old in Moseley says the force is "committed to finding the person or people responsible and bringing them before the courts."

A murder investigation has today been launched following a stabbing in which a young man has needlessly lost his life.

We’re working hard to understand the precise circumstances surrounding the attack. At this time it is unclear if the attack happened on the bus or in the street. Because of this I need anyone who was on the number 2 bus this morning around Yardley Wood Road to contact me immediately.
