Jamaica College is in grief following the murder of a third-form student who was stabbed and killed on a bus near the school Wednesday afternoon by a man attempting to steal his cell phone. Fourteen-year-old Nicholas Francis reportedly boarded on Old Hope Road and was soon after accosted by a man who demanded his phone. Francis resisted and was stabbed in the hand and chest by his assailant. The student was then thrown from the bus, breaking his arm in the fall. It's not clear what happened to the perpetrator. The driver of the bus took the student to the University Hospital of the West Indies where he died. Education Miniter Ruel Reid and a support team from the Education Ministry will be visiting Jamaica College today to help the school deal with the tragedy.
