NEW YORK - A 14-year-old Bronx boy who may have been teased and robbed by a 14-year-old schoolmate stabbed him to death on Wednesday afternoon outside their school, the police said.

The stabbing took place in front of Intermediate School 117, New York Times quoted the police as saying.

Several boys who said they saw the attack said the victim confronted the boy as he was leaving school, punching him and kneeing him in the nose, the newspaper reported.

The suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the other 14-year-old as teachers and school safety officers ran over to stop the fight, they said.
