  • 2 dead several injured in mass stabbing in English city of Wolverhampton

A woman, believed to be in her 30s, died at the scene while a second woman, aged in her 50s, was left critically ill.

Police used stun grenades to storm a flat where a knifeman was attacking two women on Wednesday morning, West Midlands Police said.

The victims of a deadly stabbing in Wolverhampton were the mother and the sister of the knifeman, who later turned his blade on himself, police said.

Another woman around 50 years old is now undergoing treatment for possibly life-threatening wounds from being stabbed in her stomach, say police in West Midlands.

Two police officers were treated after one was stabbed in the arm and the other suffered a leg injury while being chased by the attacker.

Residents were ordered out of the flats by police, the Wolverhampton Express and Star reported.

"Sadly, despite best efforts by ambulance staff, it was not possible to save either of them and they confirmed dead at the scene", said the spokesman.

"It is proper that in such a serious incident as this there is independent scrutiny of what took place".
