Four teens are now in custody in relation to the stabbing death of a 16-year-old boy and the injuring of another in Bog Walk, St Catherine on Monday.

The four, which included one 15 year old, one 18 and two 19 — were taken into custody for the fatal stabbing of 16-year-old student, Kavaughn Barnes, and the injuring of another.

According to the police’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), the deceased and the other student were pounced on by the four about 3:10 pm yesterday.

However, it is still unclear what led to the altercation.

After the culmination of the altercation, both teens reportedly sustained stab wounds and were taken to the hospital where Barnes was pronounced dead and the other teen treated and released.

CCU said investigations into the incident are ongoing.
