A high school student attacked outside an Edmonton high school has died, police state.
On April 8, Edmonton police got news of an attack near McNally High School in the Forest Heights area. The victim, a teenage boy, was hurried to the hospital.
An Alberta Health Services representative told CBC News that the teen was life-threatening.
The boy, 16, died from his damages on Friday, police say.
“This catastrophe has impacted so many, but this is not a time for anger or hatred — this is a time to mourn and heal as a community,” stated Staff Sgt. Colin Leathem of Edmonton Police Services’ killing section has taken over the probe.
An autopsy is planned for Wednesday, police say.
School board director Darrel Robertson said early Saturday afternoon, expressing his solacing for the boy’s household.
“Whatever solutions we’ll find in the coming days and weeks will fall well short of our anticipations,” Robertson stated. “Now ought to be the time for us to come together as a community.”
Rhonda Spence, whose daughter attends McNally High School, was shocked when she knew about the assault and is heartbroken by the teen’s demise.
“I didn’t know what to believe,” Spence said. “Nobody sends their children to school thinking their kids aren’t going to make it back at the end of the day. So my heart is broken for the family.”
