Four teens facing murder charges in stabbing outside Hamilton high school

Open this

Police told reporters during a news conference at the scene Monday night that three suspects had been arrested and police are searching for two others, and that some of the suspects may have been students at the school.

Two male suspects - an 18-year-old man and a 14-year old boy - both from Hamilton, were located and arrested close to the crime scene shortly after.

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.

One day later, Hamilton police said the pair was "released unconditionally."

The names of the perpetrators, who were arrested not far from the crime scene, can not be revealed per the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

On Tuesday, grief counsellors were made available to those affected by the incident at the high school, police said.

"She is distraught", Bereziuk said.


"I do encourage people that may be in possession of any type of video to please contact us, reach out to us so that we can be provided with that video evidence", he said.

He said the youths were hit by first-degree murder charges because there appears to be "some element of pre-planning and pre-meditation to this homicide".

Due to the fact this homicide investigation involves numerous youths, we can not speak further about evidence in this matter. I can't imagine the way that the family feels right now.

This is Hamilton's ninth homicide of the year.

The attack was captured on video, police said, and they urged the remaining suspects who weren't in custody to turn themselves in because they would be caught. "It was found by Hamilton police".

While Berziuk said that officers have spoken with "dozens of witnesses", they are continuing to ask anyone with further information to come forward. The school will have support staff on hand to help students cope. "There are no words that can begin to describe how shocked we are to learn about this loss", Manny Figueiredo, the board's director of education, said in a statement.
