WINNIPEG — A teen boy who was stabbed Tuesday outside Kelvin High School has died.
The student was rushed to hospital at around 12:30 p.m. from the school located in the area of Kingsway Avenue and Stafford Street. Winnipeg police would only say he had serious injuries, but the school’s student council later confirmed he had died.
At least one person has been arrested.
“Witnessing the situation with the ambulance was not a pretty sight to see,” says a parent who lives in the area. “They were doing CPR on one of the kids, I guess.”
“The victim, I don’t know who it is but he looked to be in shock,” says Evan Friesen, a Grade 11 student at the school.
“The teachers were doing everything they could. Concerned students who had life-saving training were offering to help but the situation was well in hand and emergency services came shortly after.”
The school was in a “hold and secure” situation for several hours, meaning no one could enter or leave the building.
“No further information is available at this time,” police stated in a brief release, saying interviews are ongoing.
More information is expected to be released on Wednesday.
