Wolverhampton Stabbing: Two Dead After 'Domestic' Incident In Block Of Flats

Two people have died after a knife attack that saw police storm a flat while a man was stabbing two women.

It is understood police used stun grenades during the police operation, which began shortly after 9:40am local time on Wednesday.

Officers say they used multiple stun grenades when storming into the flat in order to distract, stun, and detain the stabber.

One officer received a "stab wound to the arm" and another sustained a leg injury after being chased by the suspect, the force said.

Another woman, believed to be in her 50s, has been taken to hospital with critical stomach wounds while a police officer was treated for minor injuries.

"It's a really shocking incident and our sympathy goes out to friends and families of those involved".

The Independent Police Complaints Commission has started an investigation.

The IPCC said it had sent investigators to the scene.

Post-mortem examinations will take place on Thursday, police said.

Armed officers were outside the Highfield Court block of flats on Wednesday morning as residents watched, with three air ambulances on a field in nearby East Green.

"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.
