His family, who continue to be supported by officers, have asked for their privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

A 15-year-old boy, also from the Lowedges area, appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court this morning charged with murder.

At around 7.50pm on Thursday 24 May, officers responded to reports a 15-year-old boy had been stabbed on Lowedges Road.

The teenager was taken to hospital but was sadly pronounced dead just after 8.50pm.

A post mortem examination concluded that the 15-year-old died as a result of stab wounds to the chest.

Officers are continuing to appeal for information in connection to the investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact 101 quoting incident number 829 of 24 May.
