The Annotto Bay Police in St Mary are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of 15-year-old Rushawn Duncan of Crooked River District in the parish who was fatally stabbed in his community last week Thursday.

Police reports are that about 9:15 pm Rushawn was one of two friends allegedly attempting to play a prank on another teenager, when the plan went awry and Rushawn was stabbed in the chest.

He was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Rushawn was a member of the Jamaica Under-15 national football squad.

At this time the police do not suspect foul play.

The police said that they will be asking the Director of Public Prosecutions for a ruling on the case once the investigation is complete.
