Salisbury Police say they have found the knife they believe a 15-year-old Salisbury youth used to stab a 14-year-old Salisbury High School student.

The student, Brooklyn A.P. Jones, died on the way to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte Monday night.

Police Chief Mark Wilhelm said they found a pocketknife along Bringle Ferry Road.

The 15-year-old remains in a juvenile facility in Alexander County.

Jones’ family and fellow students mourned his death Tuesday.

Wilhelm said Jones’ bike had been stolen, and the two teens argued about the bike before the stabbing.

Jones’ family said he loved bikes, owned a number himself and repaired many for neighbors and friends.
