One victim dies after Surrey double stabbing
One of two young men stabbed outside a Surrey high school this weekend has died, and homicide police are now investigating.
The victims were found Sunday night lying in the parking lot of Frank Hurt Secondary School at 139th Street and 77th Avenue in the community of Newton. It is believed they were stabbed in the chest.
Both victims were rushed to hospital. A 19-year-old Surrey man died from his injuries on Monday, while the second victim remains in hospital with serious injuries.
Police have not released the names of the two victims, but friends told CTV News that the dead man is Devon Allaire-Bell.
Police with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team believe the two victims were playing soccer and drinking outside the school when they were approached by three men. A fight broke out and three more men joined in the brawl before the two victims were stabbed.
There are reports several men were seen running from the area, and investigators believe the suspects fled southwest through a park area that leads to 76 Avenue.
No arrests have been made. Police say the suspects are all Indo-Canadian men around 20 years old and dressed in dark clothing.
