Two boys aged 15 and 16 have been charged with murder over the stabbing of teenagers Mason Rist and Max Dixon in Bristol.
It comes a day after 44-year-old Anthony Snook was also charged with two counts of murder in connection with the incident last Saturday.
Mason, 15, and Max, 16, were killed as rival gangs clashed on Ilminster Avenue in the city’s Knowle West neighbourhood.
Emergency services and local residents battled to try and save the boys by providing first aid at the scene, but they both died in hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The two teenage boys charged with their murder, who cannot be named as they are under 18 years old, will appear in court tomorrow.
A further two men have also been charged this evening with two counts each of assisting an offender, Avon and Somerset Police said.
A statement from the force said: ‘The Major Crime Investigation Team has charged two teenage boys with the murders of Mason Rist and Max Dixon.
‘The boys, one aged 15 and the other aged 16, remain in police custody and will appear at Bristol Youth Court (sitting at Bristol Magistrates’ Court) tomorrow.’
