A teenager is dead and another suffered minor injuries following a stabbing near the 6400 block of Comstock Road Saturday night.

Richmond Mounties were called to the scene around 7:30 p.m., a block south of Granville Avenue, between Gilbert and No. 2 roads.

David Lee, 18, was rushed to hospital in serious condition, and later died.  Lee has no criminal record.

The second victim, also male, suffered minor injuries from a fall. (Richmond RCMP originally reported this as a double stabbing, but that's now been corrected by homicide investigators.)

According to a neighbour, police told them two groups of  teenagers were involved in an altercation.

“The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team continues to look into the motive for this homicide. There have been no arrests or charges to date and the connections between the victim and suspect are not known,” said Staff. Sgt. Jennifer Pound.

Police canvassed the area for witnesses, and asked nearby residents for security camera footage.

The investigation was focused on two locations, the primary one being on the street in front of a home on the 6400 block of Comstock, where a car sat in the middle of the road, with some plastic tarps sitting alongside it, perhaps to protect evidence from the inclement weather.

The other crime scene was at the western end of Mang Road, where it intersects with Grandy Road.

Investigators canvassed area homes for witnesses and sought security camera footage that might shed light on what happened.

One area resident recalled seeing an ambulance come down the street and wind up at the western end of Mang Road, some time after dinner.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team at 1-877-551-4448.
