A day after being stabbed in a Vancouver park, a 15-year-old boy has died from his injuries.
Vancouver Police identified the teen as Remy Mizutani-Lavoie.
He was rushed to hospital Saturday afternoon in Almond Park near Alma street and West 13th avenue after a fight broke out between two groups of teens, police said.
He died 24 hours after medical staff at BC Children’s Hospital attempted life-saving surgery.
Police believe Mizutani-Lavoie was stabbed in the chest by another teen.
He lost consciousness and collapsed.
Police later arrested a 14-year-old boy nearby in connection to the incident.
Under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, he cannot be named and his identity cannot be released.
Vancouver Police said the suspect has been charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
“The Vancouver Police Department’s Homicide Unit is now leading the case and will continue gathering evidence to support the ongoing investigation,” Sgt. Steve Addison said in a statement.
Police did not release information about a possible motive, or if any other charges will be laid.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call police.
