A double murder investigation has been launched after two men were stabbed during a robbery at a cannabis factory.
Witnesses reported windows of a house being broken and men running away carrying plants in Pensnett Road in Brierley Hill, Dudley, at 03:30 GMT.
West Midlands Police said a fight spilled out on to the street, during which the men were stabbed, and a car was crashed into parked vehicles.
One man was pronounced dead at the scene while the other died in hospital.
An international kickboxing star was one of two young men killed during violence outside a suspected cannabis factory.
The boxing community described Khuzaimah Douglas, 19, as a “kind, considerate, extremely talented” athlete.
It is said the teenager, who fought out of USKA fight factory in Tyseley, Birmingham, was caught up in a brawl outside the alleged drugs den early on Thursday morning.
Birmingham Live says Mr Douglas was pronounced dead at the scene in Brierley Hill, West Midlands.
Waseem Ramzan, 36, was also wounded in the violence and died hours later in hospital.
A tribute to Mr Douglas, which was posted on USKA’s facebook site, says:
“We received the unthinkable news that we had lost one of our members, our fighters, our friends and our family at the USKA gym.
“Our beloved brother Khuzaimah Douglas passed away and we all feel absolutely devastated and heartbroken following the news.
“Khuzaimah was a kind, considerate, extremely talented and humble young man who everyone had a connection with, an older brother to the USKA kids and a younger brother to all the seniors.
“To see the effect that this has had on each and every member at the gym last night was truly heartbreaking.
“I can only imagine what his family are going through right now having to process the situation and come to terms with their unimaginable loss.
“Thank you for all the messages, texts and calls of condolence, they are truly appreciated. Please say a prayer for Khuzaimah and his family and keep him in your thoughts today.”
