Murder probe launched after man dies in bedsit fight

The victim was found seriously injured and died at the scene, police said.

A murder investigation is under way after a man was fatally injured during a brawl at a bedsit.

The victim had been beaten unconscious at an address in Birmingham on Tuesday evening, and later died at the scene.

West Midlands Police officers had been called to the multi-occupancy house in Mansell Road, Small Heath, at about 7.10pm, following reports of a disorder.

Detective Chief Inspector Edward Foster said: “Clearly we are at an early stage of the inquiry but we understand there was a fight inside the address that has led to a man suffering fatal injuries.

“We have identified some significant witnesses and are conducting quick-time inquiries − but we are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and heard a disturbance or perhaps someone running from the scene.”
