Paramedics and police were called and took the teen to hospital, but he could not be revived.

A crime scene was quickly established with those at the gathering cooperating fully with police.

Detective Acting Inspector Ian Griffin said the knife would be “forensically examined” but at this stage, there was no cause for community concern.

“It’s a terrible set of circumstances but there’s certainly nothin gin our investigation that should concern the community, and we will continue to try to find out what has occurred,” Inspector Griffin said.

“It’s too early to speculate at this time, but our eyes are open to all possibilities.”
