Footage from Snapper SK
A man's been charged with murder after a 17-year-old boy was stabbed to death in Birmingham.
The teenage victim has been named as Derlarno Samuels.
Police understand Mr Samuels was chased into a shop in Waterloo Road in Smethwick and attacked with a knife at around 4.10pm on Saturday afternoon (May 1).
Floral tributes have since been laid at the shop in Waterloo Road.
The victim was found ten minutes later, with stab injuries, lying next to a car that crashed in Heath Street.
He was taken to hospital but died around an hour later.
West Midlands Police arrested 18-year-old Cam-Ron Dunn in the early hours of Sunday morning (May 2), and he has since been charged with murder.
This is a tragic loss of a young life and my thoughts are with the boy’s family who are clearly devastated at what’s happened.
In a tribute to Delarno Samuels, his family said:
Derlarno was ambitious, inquisitive and full of life. He was a generous young man who is much loved and missed by his family and friends.
Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward with more information.
Detective Inspector, Hannah Whitehouse, said:
“I really need to hear from any witnesses who saw the victim being chased in Waterloo Road or him and the attacker leaving that location, plus anyone who saw the collision in Heath Street and what happened afterwards."
