BIRMINGHAM-(MaraviPost)-Police declared a major incident shortly after stabbing spree that left one man dead and two others critically wounded in Britain’s second city of Birmingham.

Chief Superintendent Steve Graham confirmed the news in a statement on Sunday September 6, 2020.

Al Jazeera report revealed that the incident took place in an area known locally known as the Arcadian Center, where the city’s Gay Village and Chinese quarter meet in the centre of Birmingham, where many people had been seated at outdoor tables eating and drinking.

Other reports indicated that some gunshots were heard in the area in and around the time of the stabbings but police officers were unable to confirm speculations.
