Boy, 14, stabbed to death in fight

A 14-YEAR-OLD boy was stabbed to death in a fight with a schoolmate in Shanghai yesterday, police said.

A suspect, surnamed Feng, has been detained for police interrogation.

Witnesses said the fight happened less than 200 meters from the school at about 7.30am while most of the students were on their way to begin classes.

The two boys were in the same eighth grade but in different classes and the cause of the fight was still under investigation.

The victim, surnamed Ling, was stabbed in the back and pronounced dead on arrival at the No. 7 People's Hospital of Shanghai. He had suffered a severe loss of blood, the hospital said.

"Ling was running but soon collapsed on the ground," said a witness, surnamed Li. "His blood was all over his back."

The incident happened on Laiyang Road in the Pudong New Area and bloodstains could still be seen on the road yesterday afternoon. The boys were pupils at the Gaoqiao Experimental Middle School Affiliated to Shanghai Normal University.

Police said that an argument had escalated into a chase and a fight during which Feng took out a knife. After Ling was stabbed, he collapsed in front of a Lawson's convenience store.

Ling's shirt was soaked in the blood flowing from the wound, witnesses said.

"He was without a heartbeat or pulse when he arrived at the emergency room," said Li Guilan, a chief nurse at the No. 7 People's Hospital.

Witnesses said Feng did not leave the scene but threw the knife on the ground and waited for the police to arrive.

School officials yesterday declined to comment on the incident.
