Teen fatally stabbed in front of his mother was bullied, family says

She did not say if such a call was what brought her to the school Monday afternoon, but said she has yet to come to terms with "the horror" she witnessed.

The student was fatally stabbed outside of Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School in Hamilton, about 50 miles west of Niagara Falls, around 1:20 p.m., according to a news release from the Hamilton Police Department.

She described her 14-year-old son as being a bit shy as he took time to open up to people. The third suspect's age was not released. "I feel so, so bad for that family".

Police say that they have obtained video footage of the incident and are confident that they will track down the remaining two suspects, CBC reports.

Under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, the younger teen can't be identified, and a court-ordered publication ban is in place, meaning the 18-year-old man also can't be identified. -Sgt. Steve Bereziuk said they expect that list to grow.

Two teens aged 14 and 18 are now facing first-degree murder charges in his death, which police have previously described as premeditated.

Selvey was stabbed outside the school Monday and rushed to hospital where he died a short time later. "She had two people beside her, holding her because she was shaking, she was crying and crying".

"(The mother) witnessed something frightful here", he told reporters.

Investigators are scheduled to provide an update on the case later Wednesday afternoon. Police said Dunsmure is closed in both directions in that area.

Investigators are continuing to look into the relationship between the accused and the victim, Berziuk said.

Mounted Hamilton Police officers patrol in front of Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School, in Hamilton, Ont., on October 6, 2019.

Due to the fact this homicide investigation involves numerous youths, we can not speak further about evidence in this matter.
