Malik Hussain, 35, was found by emergency services with serious injuries in Baker Street, Sparkhill at 11.20pm and declared dead at the scene.
A manhunt has been launched for the killer, with police looking to hear from motorists who were in and around Baker Street, Warwick Road, and surrounding roads between 11pm and midnight.
They believe dashcam footage could have captured a car they want to identify, as enquiries to catch the killer of Mr Hussain, from Small Heath continue.
Nick Barnes, West Midlands Police, Detective Inspector said: ‘We are working round the clock to find whoever was responsible for Mr Hussain’s death and are following a number of active lines of enquiry.
‘However, I am particularly keen to recover any dash cam footage which could be crucial in identifying a car which fled Baker Street soon after the stabbing.
‘We believe this could be key in helping us to catch the killer and would ask anyone who can help to come forward as soon as possible.’
They are particularly interested in gathering information on a car seen speeding away from the scene.
Detective Inspector Caroline Corfield, from the force’s homicide team, said
At this stage we believe this may have been a targeted attack and we’re keen to hear from anyone with information which can assist our inquiries.’
