A 17-year-old Toronto boy is charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a student who tried to stop a hallway fight at North Albion Collegiate Institute in Etobicoke.
Police said Aminzada was trying to break up a fight between two people that broke out in the halls of North Albion Collegiate Institute when he was stabbed.
The Grade 12 ESL student was slashed in the face and stabbed in the abdomen at around 12:20 p.m. and was without vital signs when emergency crews arrived. He was briefly revived, but died later in hospital.
The school, at 2580 Kipling Ave., near Finch Ave. W., was put in a full lockdown which lasted for a few hours before being lifted. Several area schools were also briefly under a hold and secure.
Students were rattled by what transpired.
“I seen him on the ground,” a student named Kajal recalled. “I seen the puddle of blood under him and he was holding himself…and there was two teachers around him.”
Police have concluded their investigation at the school and it will be open Wednesday.
