Despite no charges being brought against any of the suspects, detective superintendent Una Jennings said officers are 'confident' of bringing Jarvin's killer to justice and the investigation is 'getting closer' to a breakthrough.

She said: "The public's response to our appeal has been fantastic.

"We have received lots of information flowing into the inquiry which is key to getting a successful outcome.

"It is also key that the public keeps coming forward with information."

Police believe he was knifed after a car - believed to be a light blue Volvo - pulled up alongside him and he was chased by a gang of men who jumped out.

His friend he was with at the time was also injured but survived.

Jarvin was captured on a CCTV camera in a shop in Handsworth just hours before he was killed.
