Teen killed in stabbing

Montreal police are looking for three suspects after a 16-year-old boy was fatally stabbed Monday afternoon in the city's west end.

Police confirmed Monday night that the victim had died from his injuries after being rushed to hospital.

Raphaël Bergeron, a Montreal police spokesman, said the 16-year-old was stabbed in the upper body during an altercation involving a group of young people at about 3 p.m. in the city's Côte-des-Neiges neighbourhood.

The victim sought help inside a nearby school before first responders arrived.

The suspects, who had fled on foot by the time police arrived, are believed to be between 16 and 18 years of age.

The boy is the 25th homicide victim on the island of Montreal this year.
