On May 21st this is what happened.
VANCOUVER -- A 13-year-old boy is dead and a 14-year-old boy has been arrested after a late-afternoon brawl in an open lot at a busy intersection just outside downtown Vancouver.


The incident was shocking for many police officers who have children, he added. "It's just a shocking case."

The brawl involved several teenagers of Asian descent from several schools in Vancouver and one in Surrey.

All of those in the fight were juveniles. Police did not release any names, including that of the deceased boy.

The fight was in a lot across the street from the SkyTrain station at Main and Terminal Streets. Several participants knew each other, but it was not clear yesterday if all those in the brawl knew everyone else. Around 10 people were directly part of the fight, or knew those fighting and what was going on, Constable Fanning said.

Four teens were stabbed and taken to hospital. Three had non-life-threatening wounds.

The fourth boy, who had one stab wound in his chest, died shortly before midnight.

The youngster suspected of wounding the boy hopped on a bus after the melee, Constable Fanning said.

The bus was pulled over within minutes. The suspect was taken off the bus and held in police custody.

A pocket "flick knife" was recovered but it is not clear yet if it was the weapon used in the slaying, the officer said.

Close to 30 witnesses at the scene were interviewed by the police. Investigators believe they know what happened, Constable Fanning said.

Police will make a report to Crown prosecutors who will decide on whether the 14-year old boy will be charged, he said.

Constable Fanning described the brawl as a schoolyard-type fight outside school. "Weapons came out and tragically we have a 13-year-old boy dead."

This all happened because they were fighting over a girl. And its still in the newspapers. If you live in BC you might see how the girl looks like.

What the hell was a 13 year old doing at a rumble? I’d understand if it was skin, but come on! That’s ridiculous! *Sigh* Once again the world is screwed up and people are stupid.. Children think they’re immortal until they take a blade to the heart…

And with such stupid reasons…?!

You know we have a lot of these kind of things going on. I once got caught up in one. Couple boys picked a fight, one was my buddy. Being that I was a good bluff I had managed to convince everyone I was a [email protected] So we go to this big drainage ditch. I didn’t expect much. You know, thought it all talk. But there ended up being about 20 or 25 people there.

A lot of trash talk and then people started throwing blows. I sort a held back for a moment but then let my adrenaline get the best of me. Took after some lanky kid. Somewhere in the fight a kid got smacked with a pipe, and I saw some older guy (he was like 17 though most of us were 14-16. I was 15.) get bashed with a bottle.

About that time I ran off. Of course it wasn’t much my story because I threw two blows and took one before it was over for me. But later on the news was talking about how somebody got shot in that location. Rather or not the boy was actually a part of the thing I don’t know. Honestly I doubt it cuz there would have been more talk about it. None the less I realized how stupid that crap was then.

This story should be shown all over the world. Balls are not fun. Fighting is stupid as it is, but get a bunch of people together and you only increase the chance something bad will happen!

Not to disrespect the dead, but the kid brought it on himself. Maybe his death will have meaning and people will stop being stupid?

I don’t know much about Vancuver but I’m guessing these things aren’t common place? Hell man, is there anywhere safe left? Even in the prep neighborhoods people are getting jumped… I live in the south side of OKC. Now before everyone starts, “How horrible” understand that this is not the ghetto. The ghetto is near by, but not here. No, I live in a common lower middle class neighborhood. Not long back I walked up to a gas station to get a candy bar with some change I dug out of my couch. While I was there it got robbed. I hid, and waited, and then left. Went back a few hours later and the cops were just arriving.

So, WORK ON LAW ENFORCMENT PEOPLE! Seriously, that’s ridiculous….
That kid might have been save if people called the police and they showed up...

Also, what kind of prick pulls a knife! You can win a fight without stabbing people! Even if you'll loose with skin at least nobody dies! Geeze... Well, I guess it's not a big deal, except a 13 year old? So bloody young!
