Hamilton police say a 17-year-old boy has died after he was stabbed in the chest in an incident that sent another young man to hospital.

Investigators say they were called to a plaza near Lincoln M. Alexander Parkway and Upper Wentworth Street around 4:30 p.m. Friday and found the teen with a serious chest injury. An 18-year-old had minor stab wounds to the upper body.

Police say both of the alleged victims were taken to hospital, where the younger teen died. The other had his injuries treated and was released.

Investigators say they believe the incident happened after the pair got into a fight with two male suspects.

They say a friend of the alleged victims showed up and started driving them to hospital, but pulled into the plaza and called 911 when he realized how serious their injuries were.

Police are looking for the two people believed to be involved in the stabbing, as well a third who drove them away from the scene in a grey sedan.

The first suspect is white, with a heavy build, 220 to 230 pounds, in his late teens with long, dark hair in a bowl cut. He was wearing dark track pants and a hoodie.

The second suspect is Asian-looking, six feet tall, with an athletic build, 200 pounds, with dark hair in corn rows.
