Teenage stabbing victim dies

RCMP Car

A 16-year-old Kelowna boy - the victim of a stabbing in the downtown last week - has died of his injuries.

RCMP say 16-year-old Elijah Beauregard passed away Sunday evening. 

Police found Beauregard on Bernard Avenue near Water Street, last Thursday, suffering from stab wounds - and he was rushed to hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.

RCMP believe the victim and suspect knew each other - and it was not a random attack.

Beauregard's family and police have a joint news conference scheduled for Tuesday (July 2) morning.
