Update: Police have identified the 14-year-old boy who was fatally stabbed outside Sir Winston Churchill Secondary school as Devan Selvey. They have also arrested two more teens, a 16-year-old male and 16-year-old female.
Yesterday police arrested two teenagers, an 18-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy. They are all facing first-degree murder charges.
Emergency crews were called to Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School at 1:19 p.m. Monday for reports of a stabbing. First responders immediately began performing life-saving measures on the student and he was rushed to Hamilton General hospital where he later died.
Police say they have recovered a knife near the school believed to be the weapon used to kill the teen. Police say they believe his death was pre-meditated, but have declined to offer any more information about the relationships between the victim and the accused.
Hamilton police officers will continue to be in the area processing evidence and canvassing. Police say they will continue to work with Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School and the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) as they investigate.
In a statement released late Monday, the school board said they were heartbroken to hear about the tragedy.
