A 13-year-old boy was fatally stabbed with a screwdriver after being chased for several blocks through the Sheepshead Bay section of Brooklyn. Police say Miguel Saavedra was attacked at the corner of East 15th Street and Avenue X just before 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

He was stabbed numerous times with a screwdriver and rushed to Lutheran Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Eyewitness News is told Saavedra and his 12-year-old friend were confronted by a group of teens in a park at East 13th Street and Avenue V.

The boys reportedly ran from the group, with the suspect following them on a bicycle.

The young suspect apparently caught up with his victim blocks later and attacked. He then fled the scene on the bike. He was described as a male Hispanic wearing black shorts.

No arrests were immediately made.

Police say the victim may have been in an argument with the attacker or a member of his group over the weekend.
