Three men have been arrested after a man was stabbed to death in Wolverhampton today (12 October).
Police were called to Raven Crescent, in Ashmore Park, at around 5.15am to reports of a disturbance.
A man in his 30s was pronounced dead at the scene and three men were arrested on suspicion of murder nearby.
Officers are investigating potential links to a car that was on fire in the road.
Supt Matt Markham, of Force CID, said: “This murder investigation is at a really early stage and we are still trying to build a picture of exactly what happened.
“We’ve made swift progress in arresting three men, but we still want to hear from people who were in the area at the time.
“We know a number of people heard what they thought were gunshots in the area, but we now believe that this may be down to the car that was on fire at the scene.”
Police are expected to remain at the scene throughout the day.
