The spate of attacks in the early hours sparked a massive manhunt for the suspect. Chief Superintendent Steve Graham, from West Midlands Police, said officers had “worked throughout the day to trawl footage.”
A 23-year-old man was killed in Irving Street at 01.50 BST, West Midlands Police said. A man and a woman aged 19 and 32 both suffered critical injuries. Five other people, aged between 23 and 33, were also hurt. They were all treated in hospital and so far two have been discharged.
West Midlands police ask anyone who recognises the man not to approach him, and to call 999 immediately.
