Seven suspects have been charged with attempted murder in relation to the stabbing death of a 16-year-old student last week.
Edmonton police Chief Dale McFee mentioned the charges during a meeting of the police commission Thursday afternoon.
"Those are currently being reviewed by the prosecutors now that the individual is deceased or whether those charges will be elevated," McFee said.
Karanveer Sahota, 16, was waiting for a bus on the afternoon of April 8 when he was assaulted. The Grade 10 student at McNally High School died a week later in hospital.
An autopsy completed on Wednesday determined that Sahota died from a stab wound to the chest and that his death was a homicide.
