Supt. Hemingway explained: “A team of detectives have been working through the night and into today to follow-up a number of different lines of inquiry and to piece together the circumstances leading to this callous attack.”
She continued: “Again, we see the devastating effects of crime committed with knives. It causes a lot of harm to families, lives and communities.
“It’s so heartbreaking to see such a young life lost and such young people suspected of being capable of a horrendous act of violence.”
