Teenager dies after stabbing outside sixth form college

A 16-year-old boy who was stabbed outside a sixth form college in Birmingham on Wednesday has died.

The victim, who hasn't been named yet, was found with a serious stab wound to his chest on Belgrave Road outside Joseph Chamberlain College just after 4pm.

He had been in a coma since the incident, but his life support was switched off yesterday evening (Feb 15).

Police say he died with his family around him and a post mortem will take place in due course.

“This is a tragic outcome and a dreadful loss of another young life to knife crime. My sympathies are with this young man’s family in their time of grief. This serves as another stark reminder that knives have no place on our streets and we must all play a part in deterring our young people from carrying them."

– Chief Superintendent Kenny Bell, West Midlands Police

A 19-year-old man was left with minor cuts to his back and his hand, while an 18-year-old man was also treated for a cut to his hand during the same incident.

A 16-year-old boy charged with attempted murder appeared at Birmingham Magistrates Court yesterday.

He was remanded to appear at Crown Court on February 18.
