A teenager stabbed in Ladywood has died, police have confirmed.
Akeem Bailey, 17, was found with serious injuries on Springfield Street at 6pm on 30th October.
He was taken to hospital where he remained in an induced coma until his death on Friday.
A 17-year-old boy, who was also injured and taken to hospital, has since been discharged.
Detective Inspector Jim Colclough, from the West Midlands Police homicide unit, said: “We’ll be doing all we can to support Akeem’s loved ones during this deeply distressing time.
“We are continuing to work with the community and are still appealing for anyone with information to get in touch. If you don’t want to speak to us, information can be given to Crimestoppers anonymously. Tell them what you know, not who you are.”
Zechariah Nelson, aged 18, of no fixed address, has been charged with murder, wounding and possession of a bladed article and remanded to appear before Birmingham Magistrates Court today (7th November).
