The 19-year-old stabbed to death Sunday outside Frank Hurt Secondary in Surrey has been identified as Devon Allaire-Bell.

His friend, Jack Nielsen, was also stabbed and remains in serious condition.

Police aren’t identifying the two, but friends have said it was Allaire-Bell who died and his buddy Nielsen who was badly hurt.

One friend said both Allaire-Bell and Nielsen were a force to be reckoned with, and if it weren’t for the use of knives, the fight would have had a different outcome.

An outpouring of grief has started on the social networking site Facebook for Allaire-Bell.

“Rest In Peace Devon you were amazing and touched so many peoples lives,” wrote Chantel Thompson. “Whenever I saw you, I got a warm feeling inside because of your positive and caring energy… Rest in paradise handsome.”

A vigil was held at Frank Hurt on Monday night, where a good number of people came out.

“R.I.P devon, if you could see the turn out yesterday, you’d see you gunna be greatly greatly missed,” Dylan Dawson posted on Facebook. “The heavens have a new angel now, watch down on your family big guy.”

“My deepest, heartfelt condolences to Wayne and Cynthia and all the family members,” wrote Jeannie Klein. “You are a much loved and respected family, and this should not happen to your beautiful boy.”

Allaire-Bell and Nielsen were found at about 8:30 p.m. in the rear of Frank Hurt Secondary near 138 Street and 77 Avenue.

Police believe they were drinking and playing soccer when three men approached them, getting into a verbal exchange. Three more males joined in the argument, which escalated into a physical assault and stabbing of the original two.

Investigators believe the six suspects fled southwest on foot through a greenbelt that leads onto 76 Avenue.

The suspects are all described as young Indo-Canadian males, dressed in dark clothing and thought to be approximately 20 years of age.

Investigators would like to speak to anyone who can provide details about any suspicious activity around the school or the nearby greenbelt between 8 and 9 p.m. on Sunday night.

Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT TIP Line at 1-877-551-4448 (IHIT). If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
