The victim was rushed to hospital but he died a short time later, West Midlands Police confirmed.

A man, who had left the car park, was later located by officers on Old Heath Road and arrested.

He had a stab wound to his arm and was taken to hospital for treatment but has since been released.

Forensic investigations are being carried out at the scene.

Detective Inspector Adam Jobson said: “This was a very sad turn of events and my thoughts are very much with the family and friends of the man who has died.  

“Our officers have worked through the night and this morning to seize CCTV, speak to witnesses and gather intelligence. This led to an arrest on a street nearby.”

Witnesses reported seeing a “brawl” break out near the supermarket before the man was stabbed.

A resident told BlackCountry Live: “I couldn’t believe what I had seen – he was rolling on the floor and could barely speak. He was in a bad way.

“Police blocked off the area so cars couldn’t come down the road.

“Police were on the scene within five minutes.

“At first, the fight didn’t look like much but suddenly there were sirens everywhere and police were on the scene within five minutes.”

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called to reports of a stabbing on Wolverhampton Road at 9.16pm.

“One ambulance, two paramedic officers and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.

“On arrival, we discovered one patient, a man, who was in a critical condition. He received specialist trauma care at the scene before being taken to hospital on blue lights and sirens.”
