Four children were playing at the playground. One of them, a 12-year-old pulled out a knife and repeatedly stabbed a 9-year-old boy in Western Michigan.
Authorities said the 9-year-old boy, Michael Conner Verkerke died today after he was rushed to the hospital, according to AFP.
What started the altercation between the boys is still unknown; however, the suspect called the police on his own and turned himself in.
After Vakerke was repeatedly stabbed, he ran home and passed out on his porch yesterday evening.
The pre-teen suspect is detained in a juvenile detention.
