SUDBURY — A 17-year-old transported to the hospital after being stabbed in downtown Sudbury has since died from injuries.

Sudbury police say they are investigating an alleged stabbing downtown that has one man in critical condition.

The second potential suspect is described as white, wearing a grey sweatshirt, dark pants, and carrying a dark backpack.

There may be two suspects, both of whom are male. One man is described as wearing a white T-shirt with a red jacket. The other suspect is described as “white, wearing a grey sweatshirt, dark pants, carrying a dark backpack,” the police said on Twitter.

Officials with Greater Sudbury Police Service say "do not approach individuals matching descriptions."

The Greater Sudbury Police Service said Friday at about 10:45 a.m. that officers were in the area of Pita Pit on Cedar Street responding to an incident that has left one man in critical condition.

Anyone with information related to this incident or suspects are asked to call police or Crime Stoppers. 

“Heavy police presence DT – Officers on scene of possible stabbing DT near Pita Pit,” the police said on Twitter. “One man in critical condition.”

Officials with the City of Greater Sudbury say the road closure on Cedar St., between Young and Lisgar, has temporarily blocked access to the GOVA Downtown Transit Terminal. As a result, buses will stop on Elm Street, across from the transit terminal, for travel to and from downtown.
