Footage of a man suspected of killing one person and injuring seven others in multiple stabbings across Birmingham city centre has been released.
The spate of attacks in the early hours sparked a massive manhunt for the suspect.
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, suffered critical injuries.
Five other people, aged between 23 and 33, were also hurt.
They were treated in hospital and so far two have been discharged.
The stabbings do not appear to be terrorism related or gang related, police said.
Ch Supt Steve Graham said: “At this stage we believe that the attacks were random and we have no indication of a motive.”
The first stabbing was in Constitution Hill at 00:30 BST before the attacker moved south, targeting people in Livery Street, Irving Street and finally in Hurst Street, where the city’s Gay Village meets the Chinese Quarter, at about 02:20 BST.
The CCTV footage shows a man wearing a baseball cap and a dark hoodie with white drawstrings.
“We are appealing for anyone who recognises the man in the footage to contact us urgently. If you see him, please do not approach him, but dial 999 immediately,” said Mr Graham.
“I would urge people to remain vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour to us.”
