Two teenagers have been charged after the fatal stabbing of a 16-year-old boy.

The two boys who were arrested have been denied police bail and are in custody before appearing in Brisbane Children’s Court.

After Mr. Leulusoo was stabbed, he staggered 200 yards to King George Square before collapsing, police say.

A bystander called an ambulance, but he later died in hospital.

Detective Superintendent Tony Fleming says there is an ongoing investigation and he has called for more information.

“I would definitely call on people, if there are any tensions simmering there, to cool it down,” he said.

Mr. Leulusoo was seen talking to the boys about 30 minutes before the stabbing.

They are also alleged to be members of two rival gangs based in Brisbane.

Chief Inspector Tony Fleming has warned that any kind of revenge-style gang behavior is not the answer.

“Retaliation will not benefit anyone; everyone loses out of that, ”he said.

‘The allegation is that one person killed another person. If anyone is found guilty of doing so, it is an offense of life imprisonment. ‘

“This is an anomaly, a young man is dead.”

One of the victim’s close friends described him as a footy-mad who was “nice and caring.”

“He always made sure his friends were right, he always put them to himself,” said the friend.

“He was kind, caring … and he knew how to joke.”
