Sheriff’s officials on Saturday were continuing to investigate the stabbing death of a 15-year-old boy in Norwalk.

The incident took place on the 14000 block of Harvest Avenue, south of Norwalk High School, about 3:15 p.m. Friday, sheriff’s officials said.

The boy was stabbed by assailants who apparently got out of a car. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene. His name was withheld because his family had not been notified.

Another boy, age 16, was also stabbed and rushed to a local hospital.
