A teenager was found stabbed near San Jose High School Wednesday afternoon.

San Jose police said a 911 call came in at 3:15 p.m. reporting a person down in the 300 block of North 21st Street.

Patrol officers and medical personnel arrived and found the victim on the ground. They tried to save his life, but he was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:29 p.m., according to police.

The victim is believed to be 16 years old, but has not been identified. Apparently there was some kind of fight in front of the school.

Police said the homicide unit will investigate. A family friend said the victim had been stabbed once before.

Sources told NBC Bay Area the stabbing was gang related and that police are looking for Surenos.

Several streets around the school were closed following the stabbing.  One young man tried to run through the police line yelling that it was his brother that had been killed. He was stopped by police.

The death is San Jose's fifth homicide of 2013.
