Confronting CCTV captured the terrifying last moments of a teenager being chased down a street before allegedly stabbing him in broad daylight.

Pasawm Lyhym, 16, could not be revived after he was allegedly stabbed at a bus stop in Sunshine, Melbourne’s west, on Thursday afternoon in front of shocked bystanders heading home from school and the job.

As investigations into his death continue, a new CCTV has surfaced of teenagers who appear to have been in an altercation prior to the incident.

A terrified Pasawm is seen fleeing the scene with two other teenagers allegedly wielding knives in pursuit.

One of the boys chasing him was still wearing his school uniform and carrying a backpack.

It comes as new details about Pasawm emerge as a deluge of tributes continues for the would-be trader.

Melbourne teenager Pasawm Lyhym was killed during an alleged confrontation on Thursday.

The youngest of four children, Pasawm’s family came to Australia as refugees from Myanmar.

The family is active in Melbourne’s Chin community.

“He was a lovely kid, funny at times, very friendly,” community representative Robert Sang told Nine News.

“This is the first time that the Chin community has gone through a tragic incident like this.”

Pasawm attended Staughton College and dreamed of becoming a carpenter.

“The Staughton College community is shocked by the senseless death of one of our students yesterday at Sunshine,” said Principal David Lord.

“We are embracing the family and friends of that student and making sure students and staff have all the support they need.”

Police questioned a 17-year-old man and an 18-year-old man in connection with Pasawm’s death and released them, pending further investigation.

No charges have been filed.

Victoria Police urge a third teenager believed to be involved in the altercation to come forward.

Police are on high alert fearing Pasawm’s death could trigger retaliatory attacks in west Melbourne.

Community leaders who work with at-risk youth have raised concerns about the increase in children as young as 11 armed with knives.

‘It’s like carrying mobile phones for them. They are carrying them (knives) because they are afraid. They think they are going to rob them,” said Les Twentyman.

The armed teens who were chasing the teen were captured shortly after the fatal altercation at a Sunshine bus stop.

Pasawm Lyhym has been remembered as a person

Pasawm Lyhym has been remembered as “fun, really nice, welcoming and kind”.

He had called for the return of a knife amnesty, which he helped coordinate with police in Melbourne’s west two decades ago.

“We recovered 52 weapons in two hours,” recalled Mr. Twentyman.

But it went no further.

Several travelers witnessed the alleged attack, including Pasawm’s cousin.

‘I yelled and said it’s him, it’s him [her cousin]’, he told the herald sun.

‘I tried to run and get help. I didn’t want to look. It was all so fast.

Pasawm’s older brother, Mawn, added: “He was funny, very nice, a kind and welcoming person,” he said.

Emergency services were called to Station Place in Melbourne’s west at around 3:45pm on Thursday and are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
