Three men have been arrested as police launch a murder investigation after a 16-year-old boy was stabbed to death in Wolverhampton.

Police and paramedics rushed to a house on Warnford Walk in the city at 4.30pm on Monday (18/9) where they found the teenager with knife wounds.

Officers desperately tried to give the boy CPR and paramedics battled to save him but he was declared dead at the scene.

Two 22-year-old men were arrested on suspicion of murder and a 39-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

“His family are being supported by specialist officers at this awful time and are being updated as our murder investigation continues today.”
