To 15-year-old boys have been charged with the murder of a 16-year-old after he was fatally stabbed in Bristol.

Darrian Williams was attacked in Rawnsley Park in the Easton area of the city. Following the assault, he ran to Stapleton Road where a driver helped him – but he died from his injuries at the scene.

The two 15-year-olds have also been charged with possession of a knife in a public place. They cannot be named for legal reasons.

The two boys are in police custody, and will appear in Bristol Crown Court in Monday.

Darrian’s family have been made aware, specialist family liaison officers are offering support, police said. 

Senior investigating officer Neil Meade said: “Our thoughts tonight are with Darrian’s family following this development.

“We continue to deploy significant resources into the investigation and we will keep them fully informed as it progresses.”

Police said he was attacked by two people wearing masks who then fled on bikes.

Police were called by the ambulance service at 6pm to report that the teenager had been found injured. He died at the scene.

The murder comes just weeks after the deaths of Mason Rist, 15, and Max Dixon, 16, who were stabbed in the Knowle West area of the city.

The force has introduced enhanced stop-and-search powers in parts of Bristol. A new police operation targeting youth violence has also been launched.

This includes officers meeting with headteachers to discuss how police can provide support and reassurance ahead of pupils returning to school from half term.
