Teen murdered in double stabbing at Surrey school
A teen is dead after a double stabbing at a Newton high school Sunday night.
Two victims were found at about 8:30 p.m. in the rear of Frank Hurt Secondary near 138 Street and 77 Avenue.
Police believe they were drinking and playing soccer when three men approached them, getting into a verbal exchange. Three more males joined in the argument, which escalated into a physical assault and stabbing of the original two.
One of them, a 19-year-old from Surrey, died from his injuries. The other is being treated in hospital and remains in serious condition.
Investigators believe the six suspects fled southwest on foot through a greenbelt that leads onto 76 Avenue.
The suspects are all described as young Indo-Canadian males, dressed in dark clothing and thought to be approximately 20 years of age.
Investigators would like to speak to anyone who can provide details about any suspicious activity around the school or the greenbelt between 8 and 9 p.m. on Sunday night.
