The Calgary Police Service has identified the young victim in a fatal stabbing in the community of Marlborough Park on Wednesday.
Emergency crews were called to the 5500 block of Maddock Drive N.E. at around 5 a.m.
When they arrived, paramedics found a 15-year-old suffering from a single stab wound. EMS said he was rushed to the Foothills Medical Centre in critical, life-threatening condition where he later died.
On Wednesday, police identified the victim as Leslie Sunwalk.
He was the only person treated at the scene by paramedics.
Police took one suspect into custody from the scene and say there is no risk to the public.
“We do have suspect in custody who is also 15 years old,” Acting Insp. Martin Schiavetta said. “We’re not in a position to lay charges at this time and the investigation is continuing.”

Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call the homicide tip line at 403-428-8877, the police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234 or contact Crime Stoppers.
Last year, police launched an investigation at the same residence after a 24-year-old man was killed following an altercation.
Tyler Sanderson died in hospital after being found seriously injured at around 9:15 p.m. on May 15, 2016.

At the time, police said it was believed Sanderson’s death occurred after he met with at least two other men and a woman “in relation to drug activity.”
“I cannot at this time confirm whether there is a familial connection [between the Sanderson incident] and today’s homicide,” Schiavetta said.
As of January 2017, three people had been charged with second-degree murder in Sanderson’s death, which was Calgary’s seventh homicide of 2016.
