Two teenagers have been charged with first degree murder, and two more were arrested in connection with the stabbing of a 14-year-old boy outside a school in Ontario, Canada.
Hamilton police identified the slain teenager as Devan Selvey, a student at Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School in Hamilton, about 50 miles west of Niagara Falls.
A 14-year-old boy and an 18-year-old boy were charged and appeared in court. On Tuesday morning, a 16-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl were also arrested, police said.
The two 16-year-olds remain in custody as authorities investigate their involvement, Hamilton police added.
Police have recovered the knife they believe was used to kill Devan not far from where the teen died after conducting a ground search of the homicide scene, Det. Sgt. Steve Bereziuk said in press conference.
Police confirmed that Devan was stabbed shortly after 1 p.m outside his school. His mother was on-site and witnessed the attack on her son, but police declined to say why she was there.
Bereziuk said police believe there was a relationship between the suspects and the victim, although he wouldn’t elaborate on what that relationship was.
He would not say bullying was involved, but confirmed it is something they continue to investigate.
