Johannesburg - An 18-year-old school pupil was arrested for allegedly killing a school friend's brother in Kagiso, Gauteng police said on Tuesday.

Brigadier Sipho Ngubane said the teenager was fighting with a 17-year-old fellow grade 11 pupil from the school on Monday afternoon.

"The 17-year-old then decided to call his brother for support."

When the brother arrived at the scene he tried to intervene and was stabbed in the chest by the 18-year-old.
He died at the scene.

The pupil ran away but was later arrested at a hospital, where he was being treated for a stab wound in the upper body.

He was expected to appear in the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
