The 15-year-old New Bedford male that was fatally stabbed Wednesday evening had tried to make his way home before he died from his injuries.

The stabbing took place at Middle and Chancery Streets, near the Temple Landing housing development just before 6:30pm. New Bedford Police tell WBSM News the young man ran north on Chancery Street immediately after he was stabbed, turning East onto Kempton, and then turning south onto Emerson Street. Police say that's where the young man collapsed onto the porch of his apartment and bled to death.

A woman who identified herself only as the young man's aunt told WBSM News she saw one of the other two victims getting stabbed on Middle Street. "There was a kid across the street getting stabbed. Four kids ran in a white car. They kept moving up towards the basketball court." The woman said she tried to get the victim help. "I tried to call 9-1-1 for him. I came around the corner. Kids ran and said my nephew got stabbed. That's when I ran over here and I seen him on the ground fighting for his life. And now he's gone."

The Bristol County District Attorney's Office has not released the young man's identity. However, the woman identified the 15-year-old as her nephew, Mateo "Teo" Morales.

Police say the two other victims, a 16-year-old and a 22-year-old male, both of New Bedford, are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries in area hospitals.

No arrests have been made in the stabbing. Police on the scene told WBSM News multiple parties were involved. Investigators with New Bedford Police, Massachusetts State Police, and prosecutors from the Bristol County District Attorney's Office are interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance video to determine what happened and gather more information on potential suspects.
