A man who was stabbed to death in the Sparkhill area of Birmingham on Friday night has been named as Hashim Khan.
The 37-year-old from Birmingham was discovered in Wilton Road just before 11pm.
In a statement his family said: “Hashim was a wonderful loving husband, father, brother and friend. He touched the lives of many who knew him. He was the backbone in our family."
A neighbour described how people tried to save his life.
Another man, aged 35, was found in the property with serious stab wounds and remains in a critical condition in hospital.
Three other men, two in their 30s and one in their 40s, suffered injuries which were not serious.
A 32-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and the area has been cordoned off while police enquiries are underway.
