Dea-John Reid, 14, told cops he received Snapchat death threats’ five days before being chased and fatally stabbed in Birmingham. It is understood he had allegedly told officers he had received murder threats over social media app Snapchat – but they failed to arrange a meeting to help protect him. Detectives yesterday arrested four men aged 33, 35, 36 and 38, and two boys aged 13 and 14, for murder. It came after seven suspects were seen running away after a fight broke out between two big groups near a McDonald’s in Birmingham. Police were called after the 7.30pm knifing in the Kingstanding area of the West Midlands city, and officers tried to save him – but Dea-John died at the scene.
